|We have Jumbo Brown Coturnix Quail Eggs available for eating or hatching.
We typically have Quail Chicks available. Quail Chicks are available for pick up only in SE Idaho.
We do not ship live quail. We are not currently shipping quail eggs. We do travel a bit & will
consider delivery or pick up of quail or eggs.
We will have James Marie Pharaoh, Texas A&M and Golden Manchurian Quail & Eggs available in
late 2013. We are very excited to bring James Marie Farms bloodlines to our farm!
|The James Marie Farms Pharaoh Coturnix Quail are a great XL dual purpose quail. The
James Marie Pharaoh lays an XL egg, typically weighing 14-15+ grams. At about 8 weeks they
are ready for the freezer & are only about an ounce or less lighter in weight than the James
Marie Texas A&M is at about 6-7 weeks. If you want quail for meat & large quail eggs, this may
be the Coturnix variety for you.
The James Marie Farms line of Texas A&M Coturnix Quail are a great XL meat quail. They
grow exceptionally fast & are ready for the freezer 5-7 days earlier than the James Marie
Pharaoh. Their eggs can range in size from 9 to 14+ grams. If you primarily want quail to supply
fresh, healthy meat for your family, & the quail eggs are a nice bonus, this may be the Coturnix
quail for you!
The James Marie Farms line of Golden Manchurian Coturnix Quail are a good layer of
standard sized quail eggs, typically weighing 9-11 grams. The Golden Manchurian will typically
weigh up to 10 oz at 8 weeks. If you prefer the smaller quail eggs & consider meat as a nice
additional benefit of raising, quail the Golden Manchurian may be the Coturnix quail for you.
