The quail products we sell come from "New World" species of quails, that is to say that they are from North America. There are 34 species of new world quails. These diurnal birds nest on the ground and they have been seen for a while now as an interesting alternative for chickens. They can be raised for both their meat and eggs, which are about half the size of chicken eggs. Our products come from legal hunting and trapping here in Canada and the species we deal in is called "Northern Bobwhite".
