Quail- Jumbo Brown Coturnix
The Japanese quail, also known as Coturnix quail, Coturnix japonica, is a species of Old World Quail found in East Asia. They are a migratory species, breeding in Manchuria, southeastern Siberia, northern Japan, and the Korean Peninsula, and wintering in the south of Japan and southern China.
They dwell in grasslands and cultivated fields. The plumage of the pharaoh Japanese quail breed is a speckled yellow-brown, with a creamy white strip above the eye. Adults are approximately 7 inches in length. The species is abundant across most of its range.
Currently there are a few true breeding mutations of the Japanese quail and the breeds from the United States are; Texas A&M, english white, golden range, red range, italian, manchurian, tibetan, rosetta, scarlett, roux dilute and golden tuxedo.
The Japanese quail are used mainly for table and egg production, and is a good dual purpose bird for those with very limited area.
