Tibetan Coturnix Quail are considered one of the most spirited of the varieties of Coturnix Quail. This makes them especially sought after for hunting, sporting, and dog training. Tibetan Coturnix are fast and aggressive flyers, and they hold and flush well. These birds are great for dog training and will give the dog a great workout. They are usually ready for release for dog training and hunting preserves at 8-12 weeks of age.
Tibetan Coturnix are a nice alternative to Bobwhites as they behave a bit differently and provide diversity in training. They have been known to imprint, and remain on-site if conditions are optimal. They are very hardy and vigorous birds and are more disease-resistant than Bobwhites.
Like all Coturnix, the Tibetan is easy to care for and undemanding. They can be raised with minimum expense, and they grow fast and start reproducing very quickly as well. They reach full maturity and can start laying eggs at 6-7 weeks of age. They lay well and their meat is also delicious and of high quality. They will weigh 8-10 ounces at maturity.
Tibetan Coturnix Quail are darkly colored in rich shades of earthy browns. Males and females look very similar in color although females are slightly larger in general.
