What to expect: A fun assortment of colors that can yield endless color variations. Expect some of these birds to reach jumbo weights of 12-14 oz, and others to reach standard weights of 8-10 oz or anything between these size ranges. When mature, this assortment should yield 10-14 g eggs at a rate similar to any production line of Coturnix.
The breeding quintet includes four (4) females and one (1) male, which is our recommended ratio for breeding. Birds chosen for the breeding quintet or male/female selections will mostly come from feather-sexable varieties. The straight run birds are not sexed and you will receive approximately 50% males and 50% females from both feather-sexable and non-feather sexable varieties. The displayed price for the breeding quintet is for five (5) birds, and the displayed price for males, females, and straight-run is per bird.
