This package includes (10) aprox. four week old Italian quail. These are a lovely golden bird with black speckles. These quail are a perfect age for no more heat lamps! They are feather sexed and we will do our very best to send you 2 males and 8 females. Males generally have reddish chests, whereas the females have a creamy spotted chest. These birds are currently on a grower crumble. These quail are a 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! 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.
