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.
