Pet Description

I only have 2 Japanese quail forsale,I had 18 hatch out now have 2 left to go to a new home they are ready now,they will be 3week old on Tuesday 4th aug.
.They were born on Tuesday July 14th.

They have lost their baby feathers and growing their new adult feathers.

They would normally need a heat lamp till aged 5weeks,but in this weather they should be fine without heat lamp but must be at room temperature with no drafts.They can go outside from 6weeks old.

They eat chick crumb till age 6weeks,from 4weeks old I mix chicken mixed corn and layers pellets in with the crumb then from age 6weeks the don’t need the crumb anymore and they have oyster shell grit from 6weeks but not mixed in with their food,it’s in a separate bowl.

They can go into any type of box from now till they move outside at 6weeks old into a rabbit hatch with run,newspaper in the bottom of cage with dawdust and hay in the rabbit hidy bit.

I won’t be able to tell if male of female till aged 5/6weeks the males crow and the female s don’t.

Females will lay eggs from aged 7/8weeks and they lay them everyday they are the size of an olive.
They will lay eggs weather they have males or no males.

If you have a male in with the female then you will get fertile eggs from brought 10days after your female starts laying.you can eat all eggs fertile or not they taste the same.

They make lovely pets.


Price is for both of them,they need to go together as they can’t live alone.

Avoid Online Pet Scams

  • Sellers offering expensive pedigree dogs at discount prices
  • Potential sellers offer to meet you away from the house at a location halfway, which may seem like they’re being helpful, when in fact they’re most likely hiding something conspicuous; such as the exact location as to where the puppies were bred
  • Sellers not allowing you to see the mum because ‘ they’re at the vets’ or ‘out on a walk’
  • Advertising a puppy for sale with a ‘fake’ mum to make it look like they’ve been bred in a family home
  • Sellers offering to post the puppies pedigree or medical paperwork
  • Sellers asking for deposits up-front before seeing the puppy (which potentially may not exist)
  • Puppies displaying health issues such as back problems or snoring and sellers claiming that this is ‘normal’ for the dog breed in question
  • Be aware of sellers offering a ‘rare’ breed colour
  • Puppies imported from abroad and being sold without the appropriate vaccinations or being sold too young
  • If you experience any of the above please makse sure to report the seller to us
