Quail Tales: A Journey of Feathers and Friendship in Marzi’s Garden

Discovering the Charm and Delight of Quail Companionship

My adventure with quails began just a few years ago when I brought home some baby quails, including two different breeds: Coturnix quails and Button quails.

Raising quails as pets has been a delightful journey for me, and I’m excited to share the joys and wonders of these small, charming birds with you. My adventure with quails began just a few years ago when I brought home some baby quails, including two different breeds: Coturnix quails and Button quails. Quails make for exceptional pets – they’re compact, low-maintenance, and their antics can be highly entertaining.

If you’re considering adding quails to your family, here are some valuable insights to keep in mind:

  • Choose the Right Breed: When it comes to quails, there are several breeds to choose from, but two of the most popular for pets are the Coturnix quail and the Button quail. These breeds are small in size, making them easy to care for and perfect for those looking to enjoy quail companionship.
  • Create a Comfortable Enclosure: While quails don’t require a vast amount of space, I’ve found that providing them with a spacious enclosure can greatly enhance their well-being. In my case, I transformed my first gardening space, complete with five raised garden beds, into an aviary garden for my quails. This setup not only allows them to roam freely but also offers ample shade, hiding places, and protection from potential predators. It’s a harmonious blend of gardening and avian companionship, with the added bonus of fewer garden pests thanks to the quails’ adept bug-catching skills.
  • Discover the Magic of Coturnix Quails: Coturnix quails are renowned for their delectable meat and bountiful eggs. These versatile birds are raised for culinary purposes in many countries worldwide. I’ve even taken to incubating their eggs once or twice a year to expand my quail family. They’re reliable layers, gracing me with daily eggs for approximately six months each year.

One of the most remarkable aspects of my quail family is their friendly and tame nature. These sociable birds have become cherished companions, and I’m thrilled to share glimpses of their charming personalities on my Instagram page. From their quirky behaviors to their adorable interactions, there’s no shortage of endearing moments to discover.

I hatch new quails twice a year from my old quails, a process that never ceases to amaze me. I carefully place the eggs in the incubator, eagerly anticipating the 17-day mark when I can watch these tiny beings crack their shells and enter the world. It’s a mesmerizing sight, witnessing their determination and vitality as they embark on their journey of new life. For the first few weeks, I keep them inside our home in a cozy nursery enclosure, where they grow stronger and more curious each day

When they’re ready, I introduce them to my aviary garden, a lush haven for them to explore. They soon become familiar with their surroundings and form a tight-knit quail community. It warms my heart to see them follow me around, their trust in me evident as they eagerly accept the food I offer. As they mature and start laying eggs, the aviary comes alive with the promise of new beginnings. Each season, the cycle continues, and I am reminded of the wonders of nature as my quail family thrives and flourishes.

So, whether you’re an aspiring quail enthusiast or simply curious about these petite wonders, I invite you to explore the world of quails in Marzi’s Garden.
