Quails are medium-sized birds that are raised for their meat & eggs mainly because they reproduce quickly and are easy to take care of. These little game birds are highly profitable and we will tell you how you can make raising quails, a lucrative affair. 

6 Ways to Make a Profit from Raising Quail

Quails open the doors to a handful of avenues where you can make profits. We have listed some of the most popular, and a few lesser-known, revenue-generating avenues for quail.

1. Quail Eggs

Quail eggs are cream-coloured shells with brown splotches and deep-yellow yolks. An adult quail can produce roughly one egg a day. These eggs are delicious when served alongside specialty gourmet dishes. They are taste just like chicken eggs and contain proteins, vitamins, fats and iron making them both nutritious as well as delicious. 


2. Quail Meat

Quail meat and chicken taste almost the same. Quails are eaten complete with the bones, owing to their small size. They are not easily available in stores, leaving the high-end restaurants serving Quail to purchase them from small farmers. This increased demand for Quail meat allows the small farmers to make a huge profit from rearing these small birds.

3. Hatching Eggs & Chicks

If you are looking to venture into quail farming, here are a few ways you can get into the business-

1.  Hatching Eggs

2.  Baby Chicks

3.  Breeding Covy(a flock of quail)

A flock of quail costs higher than baby chicks because they are more established. Rare varieties of quails and quail eggs can be sold at higher prices in a market that recognizes their value.

4. Quail Feathers

Fly fishermen and crafters make up the market for premium feathers. And if sold online, these quail feathers can fetch you more money due to the online platform giving these quail feathers greater visibility. 

5. As Prey to Falconers

There exists a small segment of the population that raises falcons for a hobby, and as rescuers. Falcons are natural predators that are fed prey animals like shorebirds, ducks, grebes, gulls, pigeons, songbirds and quails. Individuals who raise these falcons are very particular about feeding them and often buy the prey birds like quail alive.

A reasonable price can be quoted for an adult live quail if you’re looking to expand into this market.

6. Dog Training

An interesting segment of the market for quails is consists of quail and pheasant hunters who use live animals to train their dogs how to hunt with them. This allows the dogs to have a real-life hunting experience.


These little game birds might be small in size but they can be highly profitable. These 6 avenues are just the cream of the crop. The market for quails is growing rapidly and this might be the right time to venture into quail farming.
