  • Easy Steps onfarming Quail.

    Hello, all in this thread we will be sharing some tips and easy get around methods onfarming quails.

  • #2
    First of all why select Quail Farming?


    • #3
      This is the simple and major advantage with quails.
      Quail lay smaller eggs as chickens, but they that are prolific! More than 100 quail eggs, plus a chicken egg for scale.


      • #4
        Does Quails Have any size constraints?


        • #5
          Living on a third of an acre is important select the items that will not be stressed in small spaces and not as negatively impact the ecology.
          Larger livestock, such as cows, pigs and sheep does not seem appropriate, due to their space requirements. I decided that I would not be able to support themselves and maintain a productive
          garden on my website. For large animals that I decided to stand hunting deer and help manage wild population.


          • #6
            Again why select Quail Farming?


            • #7
              Why Quail? 2
              Raising quail is part of its plan for the establishment a small-scale example website permaculture systems in cold mild climate. The close 1/3 acre yard provides variety of challenges to raise livestock while developing ecosystem that provides human needs as well.

                Living in the suburbs, I face the regulations of the authorities about what I can and can not increase on my land. Since I knew I did not want to raise more livestock, I started looking at my options for smaller animals. Rabbits, ducks, chickens and seemed be the obvious choices. I could probably get away with raising certain chickens or ducks without anyone complaining,
                but there is no way I could raise enough provide my needs households on a plot of 1.3 acres. Currently we consume the equivalent of 15 chicken eggs per day. Unfortunately rabbits do not
                lay eggs, contrary to popular representations of spring fertility rites (sorry Easter Bunny), so I decided I required to raise some form of poultry. After researching the different options I had added
                poultry to my system, I came across the book Microlivestock: Little known small animals The promising economic future, a link to which you
                can be found in the references. These quiet little birds seemed the perfect option for my situation. They had the potential to provide all of my egg needs, and there was no specific or local
                ordinances restricting. After three years, they still performed better than my expectations. The following information comes from countless hours of research as well as my personal
                experience raising quail. I hope this will be a valuable starting point for developing your own quail system for meat and eggs. 3 Raising Quail meat and eggs Like most pets, there is a
                number of quail races with a variety of characteristcs. For quail, there are two distinct components species, the Old World and New World quail. Even If these species have physical and behavioral similarities, there are some important differences. New World quail, such as Collins, grow the old world quail, but they take twice as long to reach mature size (~ 16 weeks) than the Old World quail (~ 78 weeks). Also, the Old World quail was 200 300 eggs per year, while Colins lay about 150. Colins are more wild and prefer a pen fly again they developed. Japanese quail Old World have been domesticated for thousands of years, and are well suited to confined spaces. For these reasons, I decided to raise a variety of Japanese quail. If you want to raise quail in a more natural environment, northern bobwhite, Tennessee Reds or another new variety of the world could be a best choice. Each race has its strengths and weakness; one that works best depends on the situation.

                  How fast will we make profit in quail farming? do we have to race or rush to it?


                  • #10
                    Why race?

                    fertility and productivity fall considerably. Eggs average 10 g in weight, and chicks weigh a mere 56 g when hatched. I choose Pharoah variety of Japanese quail because of the available races, they had the the highest potential for meat and egg yields. Japanese quail (Pharaoh Variety) Old World quails are native to Asia and Europe. In nature, prefer temperate Old World quail climates, with northern habitats to 38 ° N. They are omnivorous, eating a mixture of insects, seeds and grains. They were domesticated thousands of years, especially in Asia and
                    Oceania. They continue to be widely raised and are very popular in Japan. Initially raised for ornamental value songbirds in the early 20th century Japanese breeders selected for the domestic meat the birds. During World War II, these birds are gone by extinct, but ranching has since created a resurgence of the quail. Apart from their rapid growth and crawl egg production, Japanese or Coturnix, quails are robust, birds resistant to disease and adapted to small spaces. The females start laying eggs soon 56 weeks old and reach full production in 710 week. Highly productive females can lay 250 300 eggs in a year, but after the first year,

                      incubating 1718 days Japanese quail have to be hatched in an incubator, as instinct brood has been anything but reproduce out of them. They require the same conditions as chickens, a little shorter time trap. Most eggs will hatch In 1718 days.

                        Process Overview
                        2) brooding 1,721 days An incubator is a heated container for birds live there. The the temperature must be maintained in the mid-90s until the birds start to thin. The ambient air the temperature of your incubator will determine the wattage of the bulb you need to achieve this temperature.

                          + Days Once the birds have reached 21 days they are feathered out and no longer require additional heat. At this point, you can put them in a container to grow out your choice. This can be any container or cage system battery to a quail tractor, just contains something for them where they can eat, drink and grow.

                            Housing requirements: Incubation Process
                            Quail requires the same incubation conditions as chickens, with a slightly shorter time to hatching. More Eggs hatch in 1718 days. Eggs should be maintained at 99.5 ° F if using a forced air incubator, 101 ° F for a still air incubator. Humidity should be between 25% to 50% for the first 1,415 days. The last 3 days are called the "lockdown" period and the humidity is increased to 60% to 75%. The eggs should be rotated at least 3 times per day. A egg turner is recommended. Stop turning over the lockout period. Do not open the incubator While Locked! Chicks can live up to 24 hours in the incubator to wait until there is some before opening them and quickly take them out. Read and follow the instructions of your incubator
                            for best results. Housing requirements: Incubation 8 Quail eggs inside an incubator. Double thermometer / hygrometer is placed in the same height as the eggs to a precision better than the
                            air may be laminated in the incubator. In addition, it is placed in a location where it is easily visible without opening the incubator.

                            Additional considerations
                            Incubation is by far the hardest part of raising quail. If you have other birds hatched, you should be fine. If you've never hatched nothing wait before failures. Everything must be precisely kept in the above ranges, close enough work horseshoes and hand grenades, but not incubation. storage of eggs is an important variable in the the hatching rate. The General Internet wisdom is to hatch eggs that are more than 10 old days. However, if they are kept in adequate conditions this can be extended with only a slight decrease hatching. I personally know a commercial operator keeps his eggs for 30 days and again sends a hatch rate of 80% using a commercial install. Hatching eggs must be stored out end down, in a cool, stable temperature.
                            Basements or cellars are ideal for this. Anywhere with a stable temperature that does not receive more than 7580 ° F
                            should be fine. In addition, by turning the eggs that have not hatch will help increase the hatching rate. A additional egg turner works very well for this.

                              instructions it is a bit of a joke. Basically, recheck all. Calibrate your thermometers hygrometer. Make sure the eggs are stored correctly. Make sure there is a sufficient number of males and females; 1 male to 24 females. Make sure the light cycle is correct for the breeders, with a minimum of 16 hours of light.
