are a dual‐purpose food source bird, and for the most part that is
exactly what they are raised for commercially. There are some who raise
them purely for sport hunting. In many places around the world, hunting
clubs have been established for different types of game, including
quail. They are hunting animals that have been specifically bred and
raised for this purpose.|
Some characteristics of these quail in
the wild include extensive migratory behavior and early, prolific
breeding capabilities. Humans have domesticated and bred these birds
for thousands of years. Many color variations have been and are
currently being developed. Japanese and Chinese Painted Quail are ideal
aviary inhabitants. Being ground dwellers, they help keep the aviary
floor tidied up. Be sure to have your game bird incubator ready and
tested when your quail eggs arrive. If you own an egg candler you can
check for development and watch your quail grow right in their shell.
Make sure you have your game bird brooder, game bird founts and game
bird feeders ready for your quail at hatch time.
period for a fertile coturnix quail egg is around 18 days in an
incubator with humidity settings of 50‐60%. By day 14, you should move
the eggs to the hatcher and stop turning them. Once your babies hatch

reason these birds are so popular for commercial consumption.
