These birds have been in the US since
the 1960's and first made popular by Albert Marsh, Marsh Farms,
in California. They are easy to keep and extremely tame birds.
This type of quail makes both an excellent pet quality or as
an edible table quail.
This is "the" quail to
have if you want great egg production, fast growth, and a large
size bird. The eggs hatch in 17 days, the young grow very fast
and can be fully mature and laying eggs at 8 weeks of age.
THESE ARE AN EXCELLENT
CHOICE FOR IN CLASS SCHOOL PROJECTS AND ARE READILY AVAILABLE
ALL OVER THE US.
Since their introduction in the 1960's
many new color varieties of these quail have surfaced and their
popularity has increased as pet birds.
