Fully Feathered Quail

We wanted to provide information on what Fully Feathered birds are and how orders work. So generally, all orders take 5-7 weeks to process from the time you place the order. This can fluctuate based on season, or fowl behavior. We are a farm that takes a wholistic approach to our fowl. We naturally let them be who they are and express themselves. This is one of the reasons you choose us.

First, we receive your order, collect enough eggs (based on orders in process, etc) then set to incubate. General incubation is 18-20 days.  After hatching, we begin the growing process. In general, chicks who are born 50% are male and %50 female. Sometimes we get more males a hatch, never more females! So, during the weeks leading up to your pickup, we check for the sex, issues, etc. This takes time, generally will be ready after hatch, 5 weeks or maybe more (all depending on conditions, timing etc.)  So a total of 2.5 months for the fully feathered. Remember it includes collection, incubation, hatching, and raising. We are doing the hard work of chick rearing for you!

Example order:

CollectMarch 10

RaiseApril 4 -May 1 to 8th

Feed and Supplement Recommendations:

Want to get your quail off to a good start? our quail are non-GMO raised. We offer excellent feed specifically for quail and gamebirds and our gamebird feed is very popular with the birds. You can mix the starter with the adult to get a good protein content for the growing stage or adult stage. See here for the grower and adult.

In addition, we recommend using our Oil of Oregano in the water. Gut health is very important to quail.

We also have some tips and tricks for success. Thank you again for your order!

We will keep in touch with you on the status of your order. Haven’t heard? No news is good news! You are welcome to reach out here if you would like an update.
