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.
