Teensy Weensy

After searching all month for a breeder, I finally located some Coturnix quail just down the road from here.  They are so cute!  At three weeks they are about the size of a hamster.  In a couple more weeks they'll be laying and we'll be able to start selling teensy, weensy little quail eggs.



Pheasants next?

  1. They are so cute! I'm thinking their eggs would be rich and about the size of a robin's egg? Can't wait to see some eggs:)

  2. We raised these for eggs, they are a lovely speckled blue, much larger than Bobwhite eggs. Peel easier too when picking! They are not long lived though, about six months tops.

  3. Should say "pickling".
