I started raising cortonix quail about 6 months ago. They are butcher ready 6 weeks after hatching, laying eggs reliably at 8 weeks old, and produce quality meat. I sell dressed birds for $4 each at the local farmers market.

Are they good fliers? do they hold tight for the dog? Yes I will eat them but I want them for dog training.

I raised some pheasants at one time.  I was looking into keep quail for eggs but never did.
