Quail bird is a small bird with brown feather specked with white, black. tan, gray, or chestnut. The average length of the bird is between 8 and 11 inches. Quail eggs and meat are high value delicacy and a rich source of protein, minerals and vitamins.

Quail Eggs

Just like quail birds, quail eggs are speckled and are 5 to 6 times smaller than chicken eggs. The nutritional value of quail bird is four to five times greater than that of chicken’s egg.

They are proved to be valuable source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 and vitamin D, iron, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, phosphorus, and other essential micro-nutrients and amino acids and that is the reason why they are recommended for regular consumption. Various researches conducted showed that quail eggs contain 13 percent protein compare to 11 percent protein in chicken eggs. It contains 140% of vitamin B1 compared to 50 percent in chicken eggs. They contain 5 times of iron and potassium as can be found in chicken eggs.

Though they are very tiny, they have healing effect on more than 30 serious ailments which include tuberculosis, asthma, diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, digestive disturbance, gastric ulcer, liver problems, anemia, eczema, heart problems, bronchitis, depression, panic, anxiety, various allergies etc.

The following are the health benefits of Quail eggs:

Quail Bird Farming

What is quail bird farming? Quail bird farming is a type of poultry farming that specializes on the rearing of small birds called quail for the purpose of egg production, meat production or for other uses. Quail birds are healthy and have strong immunity system and so do not need injection and vaccine unlike other birds. They do not die easily and are resistant to diseases. They are poor feeder and excellent layers.

This business is a very lucrative business and I can recommend it for anybody because there is touch of God on the business.

Quail bird farming is five times better than chicken and turkey rearing, and I assure you that a person with 400 quail laying birds is better off than a person with a person with 2000 laying chickens. The fact above is due to the following reasons:

2000 quail birds will feed on the same feed that will be taken by 400 chickens.

They have immunity against diseases. This implies that you don’t need to waste any money on medications and vaccine and that makes the business a low risk one with high return.

Quail birds mature earlier and start laying eggs after 7-8 weeks.

Quail farming requires less labor. A person can manage 5000 quail birds successfully.

Small space is required for rearing quail birds

They lay a greater number of eggs between 250 and 280 in a year.

The most important reason why this farming business is easy to start is because. It requires small amount of capital. With just N30,000 you are good to go provided you have a space where they can be reared.  With N30,000 you are on your way to financial freedom because you will be getting an average daily income of N1500 and if you have enough capital you can become a millionaire from this business that is just gaining popularity now.

I know of a person that started the business in April this year and as at August this same year, she has made up to three times of her investment. Many people have tried other livestock businesses especially chicken rearing and get their fingers burnt but by the grace of God no one has gone into this business and regret.

Quail birds are easy to rear and you can even start the business while on paid job.

Requirement for Quail bird Farming:

The following are the requirement for quail bird farming:

Capital: This is the basic requirement for all businesses and Quail farming business is not left out as well. You don’t need a big capital to start this business, in fact, you can start with as low as N30,000 and expand as you go.

Training: After getting your money ready the next thing is to go for training. Although the training but you still need to get trained by a competent and practicing quail bird farmer, so that you will be shown the best way to do the business and how to avoid pit falls on your way as a quail bird farmer.

Rearing Space: A space that is well ventilated is needed for the rearing of quail bird to keep your cage. Some people have contacted me asking me how they can start quail bird farming without a space. My answer to that question is this: It is not possible to do this business without a space. The space you need for quail rearing is not much; you can even start at your backyard.

Other requirements are: Drinking troughs, feeding troughs, electricity or lantern, stoves or coal pot to keep the house warm (for a day to 3 weeks old)

Quail Bird Rearing Process

Quail bird rearing is very easy. You can rear a large number of quail in a small floor area. A room of 10ft by 12ft can take up to 400 quail birds conveniently.

You can get a day old baby quail or go for a week, 2weeks, 3 weeks or even point of lay quail’s birds. My advice for beginners is to go for a two or three week’s old quail because rearing a day old quail is technical and is quite challenging because the mortality is always high in the first week. After the first week the rearing process is so easy and even a 10 years old boy can manage it.

Quail birds are so gentle and the droppings do not produce unpleasant odour unlike chicken farming.

Quail Bird Housing:

Quails are very small and so their houses should be built specifically to prevent them from escaping. You can build a pen, construct a cage or use a room floor to rear them. But remember, the most importantly thing you need to put at the back of your mind when constructing their house is to avoid them from escaping.

Quail bird Feeding

They feed on poultry feeds just like chickens. Quail birds eat little feeds unlike chickens. And that makes them more profitable than any other poultry farming.

Challenges of Quail Bird Farming

Quail farming is so easy and there may be little challenges or no challenge at all. The most common challenge of this business is marketing at the initial stage of the business but with more awareness of the health and nutritional value of quail eggs and meat, the challenge has been overcome and the challenge many quail farmers are facing now is how the demand that is growing at exponential rate will be met.

Another little challenge you might face if you go for a day old quail bird is mortality. The birds suffer from respiratory disorder in their first week and that may cause high mortality but the challenge is overcome after the first week.

    • Hi Henrrio.
      I’m sorry i do not know any place in the south eastern part of Nigeria where you can be trained for now. The training can be done on phone and mails but the main challenge will be where to buy the quail after the training, although if I know your place and get a bus that come to you place, I can send them while you cater for the transport fare.
      Unlike Chicken you will need to buy both male and female.
      Regarding the marketing. The marketing may be a little challenge at the beginning but because the eggs works, I tell you it will announce itself in short time and you will be suprise at the number of customer you will be receiving.

    Hi sir, am an agric investor. Having gone thru your writeup, and having heard a lot about this quail farming i got interested. I want to train my staff in this quail farming what are the requirement?

  22. Hi, I’m from Philippines. I watched some videos about quail farming. And tried to raise about 50 females with 5 males. They can lay eggs of at least 43-50 a day. It can only consume of about 1 and a half kilo of laying mass. So, it can give me a profit of almost half the cost of the feeds daily. Lucky in here there’s no problem in marketing quail eggs.

    The only problem is I don’t have money to buy more (hundreds) and also I am in a subdivision and some neighbors don’t like the noise of the male quail.

    Thanks for sharing, I will try my best to get some money to buy more quails.

  26. olusola says:

    Hello, wao this is a good one. When I first saw the eggs, I thought they were lizard eggs. I am a poutry farmer but do only chickens for now. Please, How much is a day old? Do they lay eggs daily? Like how is the egg sold? Which feed do they take layers or broiler feed? How many males is adequate for how many females? Then you are only emphasising on the eggs, what about the meet, is it delicious? Thanks

    • Hi olushola.
      Sorry for the late reply. A day old cost between N100 and N120 depending on your location but it is not advisable for first timer to go for a day old. You can start with 2 weeks since you have experience in poultry farming. They lay eggs daily but production is around 75% meaning some may skip some days.
      A create of egg cost between N500 and N700 now depending on your location.
      They feed on poultry feeds as well.
      The best ratio is 1:1 meaning for every one female youmust put a male, but for commercial purpose we recommend a male to 2 females.
      Both the meat and the eggs are good but the egg is more profitable then the meatsince the birds are small.
