Quail

Quail are just simply amazing and a bird that does not get enough attention.  One amazement is that they can begin to produce eggs for you at 8 weeks of age. Compare that to chickens which take an average of 5 1/2 months. Eggs are about the 1/3 of a size of a regular chicken egg but pack a nutritional punch and considered a superfood. These eggs are just beautiful.

Coturnix quail are quiet little birds that do well in confined predator safe spaces. Easy to care for, these birds can live in any situation – apartments, homes, porches backyards and farms or homesteads., the perfect little addition.

Quail eggs are packed with vital vitamins and minerals. Even with their small size, their nutritional value is an amazing three to four times greater than chicken eggs. Quail eggs contain 13 percent proteins compared to 11 percent in chicken eggs, Quail eggs also contain 140 percent of vitamin B1 compared to 50 percent in chicken eggs making them perfect for vegetarians who eat eggs. Quail eggs provide five times as much iron and potassium and have not been know to cause allergies  as chicken eggs sometimes can.

Regular consumption of quail eggs helps fight against numerous diseases. They are a natural combatant against digestive tract disorders such as stomach ulcers. They strengthen the immune system, increase brain activity, promote memory health and stabilize the nervous system. They help with anemia by increasing the level of hemoglobin in the body while removing toxins and heavy metals.
