Quail have remarkably fast lifecycles: 
Eggs hatch after just 17 days, the chicks start growing feathers after their first few days of life, they then start laying at 6-8 weeks old, lay 280-320 eggs a year for 18 months and die after a few years.

We keep two different breeds of quail:


Dark Brown & yellow speckled
Lay approximately 280 eggs per year
Larger than Italian quail


Cream with brown speckles and a coloured ring around the neck (brown for males, black for females)
Lay approximately 320 eggs per year
Smaller than Japanese quail, but lay the same size eggs
