Quail eggs hatch in less than a month. They live three to five years and reach sexual maturity in two years. Quails may lay up to 12 eggs at a time.
Quails feed on seeds, flowers and insects. They do not migrate and spend their lives in the area where they hatched. Quails are solitary birds except during mating season. At that time they can be found in groups as large as 100 birds.
Snakes, cats and raccoons are common predators of the quail. They grow to lengths of 7.8 inches and may weigh up to 4.9 ounces. Quails are not in danger of extinction.Learn More
