Farmette 1769

by Monica Melograna-Ward

Take a quick look at the incubation process, if you choose it instead of consumption. These are Chinese Painted Quail eggs, birds most often referred to, somewhat incorrectly, as Button Quail. If you like instant gratification, this is as close as you will get, since these eggs can hatch after about 2 weeks.


The result is just the size of a quarter. They become full size (4″-5″) at 6-8 weeks. Shortly thereafter these now adult quail will start to lay and quickly populate the world with their wind-like whistling calls.
