Quail poultry are short birds, very rich in protein weighing about 500gms.Their fertilized eggs have  high demand among farmers and health conscious Kenyans selling at good prices. The eggs take about 17 days to hatch and two weeks in the brooder. This means the egg incubates for 16 - 17 days.Quails poultry are short cycle birds because they mature early and start laying eggs in the sixth weeks. So, if you have an egg today, you will need about eight weeks for the egg to begin giving you an egg per day. No other commercial birds performs this well. A lighting system is very important and can be improvised as a way of also keeping the room warm. The chicks requires some warmth just as is the case of chicken. The birds require feeds amounting to at least 20-25 grams of feed per bird per day.

Old parent stock of quail poultry can be revitalized for weight gain by shortening the light exposure they get per day from 17 hours to 8 hours after which they can be slaughtered for meat. The broiler quail poultry stores very limited fats making it a protein source for weight-sensitive and health conscious people. Layers  birds can be reared commercially up to18months. If the birds are reared for meat it will reach slaughter age at  six to eight weeks depending on the feeding regime the farmer puts the birds on. Quails poultry do not need immunization like the hens given their strong natural immune system which reduces the cost of production.
