Italian Coturnix

Four week old Italian Coturnix quail

The Italian Coturnix is a Pharaoh quail with the yellow gene switched on. They are popular for their looks and for egg laying.

I have two hens and four roos. Today I moved them out of the plastic tub into two growout cages and weighed them each. Hens: 209g, 182g. Roos: 153g, 150g, 135g, 123g. I put the two hens in with the largest rooster for now. And the other roos are in their own cage.

There are more Italian eggs in the incubator, so stay tuned.
