I was surprised today by a giant quail over achiever. They are supposed to begin laying at 8 weeks, with viable eggs at 12 weeks.
My quail apparently don't know this, and have begun laying at five and a half weeks!
A little small, but impressive work for quail hen just over a month old!
Two of the males were screaming and fighting, they got a all expense paid trip to freezer camp. I am down to 12 now, should be two good breeding groups.
I am impressed by eggs this soon; a serious over achiever, no question there!
