Quail are prolific layers, laying up to 300 eggs per year, and will start laying in as little as 2 months, compared to 6 months for chickens or ducks. They only consume on average 2lbs of feed per month, and in return for the care that you give them they will provide you with some of the most nutritious eggs on the planet. The Quail Tracker can house anywhere from a couple to a couple of dozen laying hens, depending on your land and management.
