With our incubators full most of the time, we almost always have birds available for the majority of the breeds we keep - some however are far more seasonal. Fancy breeds are only readily available from autumn onwards, and tend to get snapped up fast due to their popularity! It’s for this reason we advise early booking of pairs.
Coturnix and Chinese Painted Quail are another matter, these are readily available from day old chicks, through to point of lay and occasionally batches of ex breeders. There is potential for discounts on bulk orders for all birds, with price breaks at 25, 50, 100, 250, 500 and 1000 birds at a time. For larger quantities you would need to pre-order at least 10-12 weeks before requirement. This is to ensure we set enough eggs to cover all orders.
Basic prices for all strains of Coturnix are as follows:
Day Old Chicks - £0.65 Each
Week Old Chicks - £0.90 Each
Three Week Old Chicks - £2.25 Each
POL Hens - £5.00 Each
Cock Birds - £1.50 Each
Chinese Painted Quail 8 weeks old are as follows:
Pied - £8.00/Pr
Whites - £7.00/Pr
Normal and all other colours - £6.50/Pr
Extra hens - £5.50 Each

The inclement weather of December has meant that we have been able to really get on with building some new breeding cages. These should really help in producing cleaner hatching eggs - why not give them a try with fertillity currently running at over 90%.
Our latest hatch of coloured chicks are out - great for the hobby breeder or keeper. There's some really intresting colours in this lot... Can't wait to see what they grow into.
