Jumbo Browns or some would call 'coturnix' quail are the definition of a dual purpose bird, laying approximately 300 eggs per year and can be butchered in 8-10 weeks of age at full maturity. When these birds reach full maturity they can weigh up to 14 ounces. Jumbos are a very solid and reliable food source for homesteaders and urban farmers. With how quickly they reach maturity at six weeks of age, laying eggs around 7-8 weeks old and reproduce insanely fast, they're small but might tool in your arsenal to becoming more self sufficient.

***New flock owners, new to quail we would recommend the juvenile or adults. Chicks are very fragile and sensitive. Having raised quail will make the experience more pleasant and you get eggs sooner too! Questions please ask us.
We also offer hatching eggs for this breed.
We are so happy with our new little pets! We ordered six quail in the middle of the autumn - we were a bit concerned about temperature as we live in the Northeast - but they have settled in wonderfully. Communication with AZ Chickens was informative and kind every step of the way, helping us figure out which birds would be best for us. The birds arrived healthy and in good time after they shipped. We will definitely recommend to our friends who are also considering starting with quail!
