This package includes 6 (aprox. eight week old coturnix quail). 1 male, marked with leg band, and 5 females. This is a great ratio if you ever decide to expand your flock. Colors will be a variety of what is in stock, and will include a minimum of three colors. Including but not limited to, pharaoh (the natural color), Italian (golden with black stripes-shown),english (white), Tibetan (dark brown), and tuxedo (dark brown with white chest-shown). These quail are a beautiful and productive way to add to your self reliance. These quail are great for the backyard farmer and homesteader alike. They take up little space, food to egg ratio is superior to chickens, and both meat and eggs are delicious. My favorite part is that once you own them, they are sustainable! Just incubate your own eggs and you can have quail indefinitely! These birds are currently on a layer crumble. Birds are NPIP certified and have been tested for Pullorum and H5/H7. These birds are shipped 2 day. Most post offices require you to pick up birds at the post office.
