Production of quail eggs in bulk at home
A very simple and effective business idea is offered to your attention: the production of quail eggs and the cultivation of Japanese domesticated quails for meat. With the appropriate number of quails, the benefits of production are obvious. Quail will not only feed your family with eggs and healthy meat, but will also begin to generate a steady income. In order to accommodate quail cages in production, it will not take many areas. The size of one cage (120 x 60 x 180 cm), in which you can hold up to 100 quail hens of layers. You will need an area of only 0.72 squares. This place is enough to organize a mini-farm in the annex of a private house. Even a balcony in a city apartment can become your production. If you count, then on average per month, one quail will lay 15 to 20 eggs, weighing one egg 11-12 grams. At the same time, a quail eats 30-40 grams of feed per day. This means that for a month for 100 quails about 120 kg of feed will be required, for this quail you will lay 1000-1500 eggs. The interest in quail eggs is growing consumer interest every day. I think it will not be difficult to calculate the economic efficiency depending on the market price of feed and quail eggs in your city. Since everyone knows many facts about quail eggs and the benefits they bring, then the implementation will be effective. In addition to quail eggs, add another one of the same farm for a hundred quails, to produce healthy delicacy – quail meat. Moreover, the quail is ready for slaughter at the age of 2.5 months. Thus, it is possible to expand the range of products in production. Here is a rough outline of one quail farm per 100 heads. If you are a creative person, then you can afford to create this not a complicated device yourself. Thanks to your imagination, you can create more original and practical quail cages.
You can make a quail cage yourself. A homemade quail cage.
VOLUME OF PRODUCTION OF QUILP EGG DEPENDS ON THE NUMBER OF QUARTERS
More quails, more eggs. There are two main breeding methods that are commonly practiced in the production of quail. It is logical that to increase egg production, you need to increase the number of birds. For the effective breeding of quail to the right amount, there are two of the most popular methods. The first is when the males and hens are in the same cage, the ratio should be 1: 2.5, which means that for 4 quail males there should be 10 quail hens. If you are just starting out, then as a beginner, this method will suit you. But keep in mind, this method has several disadvantages, such as frequent fights, between males, which leads to general nervousness in the cell and poor fertilization and, accordingly, egg production can become irregular. But if you have already sold the first batch of eggs and want to increase the quality of production, and accordingly the profitability of farms, then you are ready to use another way of raising quail. The second method is a bit more complicated, but more efficient. The essence of the method is to save men and women separately and place the males in chicken cells periodically, so that they do their job. In this way, you will achieve high fertility rates, and the quality of breeding can also be well controlled. This method is good for increasing product productivity, and is also especially good if you want to go further on breeding your breed. For example: add Chinese painted quail, where using this method you have the opportunity to better control the colors and patterns you want. Or to breed meat breeds as PHARAOH or hens like Japanese Quail. The only drawback of this production method is that it takes a lot of time.
EFFECTIVE PRODUCTION NEEDS CONTROL, FOR QUAIL EGGS DURING THE INCUBATION PERIOD
Turn the eggs over so that the chicken hatches itself. Domesticated quail lost their instinct for hatching eggs, so to a large extent the only way to breed quail is used in the incubator. Collect eggs 3-5 times a day to reduce infection. Engaged in the efficient production of quail eggs, follow simple rules. Choose large eggs with a strong shell, carefully checks them for any cracks or other damage. Do not wash the quail eggs, otherwise you will remove their porous protective coating and they will become vulnerable to bacterial infections. Moreover, the eggs can not violate the level of humidity. It is also recommended that you perform a screening test. This will show you any possible cracks in the eggs, healthy yolks and the size of the airspace. Store quail eggs in a cool, dry place on egg trays. Storage temperature should be between 12 – 17 degrees Celsius and with a relative humidity of about 70 – 80 percent. Be careful if the temperature rises above 18 ° as this temperature can trigger a false incubation process.
