Quail

Quail
These lovely little birds make great pets, are easy to care for and lay lots of tasty little eggs, they take up very little space. Their life expectancy is around two years. They have light tan and brown feathers with dark specks on their throat and breast.
 
Quail are the smallest European game bird, they are fairly hardy, living happily in a small ark or hutch, although protection from harsh winter weather & temperatures is needed.  They like covered areas and do not like open spaces, so add branches and boxes in their enclosure.  Protection must be given from rats, dogs, cats and other predators.
 
Quail lay lovely little chalky mottled brown, cream and blue eggs, they start to lay at around six to seven weeks and should lay around 200 eggs per year.  The eggs have a slightly stronger flavour and a more dense consistency than a chickens egg.  They have a shelf live of approximately 12 days and provide a good source of vitamin B12, Iron and protein.
