    Raising Quails for food versus Rabbits

    Hey Y'all,

    I have been raising rabbits, tilapia, and quails for a few years now. In my opinion, of those three, quails are the best option. I originally bought my quail eggs from a farm in West Covina, California off of ebay. Within a couple of months, I was able to grow my quails exponentially. It only takes them 6 weeks from hatch to start laying. Once they start laying, they'll lay each and every day for the rest of their lives. I was told that consuming a quail egg has enough calories to sustain you in a survival scenario. In addition, these birds will eat just about everything! I had orginally intended to raise chickens, but those darn birds eat too much. Please tell me what you think.

    I used to hunt quail all the time when I lived in California. I had a beagle that could track them on the ground (they do not like to fly away in thick brush; they just run). Very good eating.

    In survival scenario, I think nothing holds as much value as food. Imagine what you could barter for with a basket of quail eggs. Within 2 months, I had my own establishment of reliable food source.
