About Us
Small bird farm west of Steamboat on 40 acres. We raise quail, chickens and ducks. We ventured into raising quail last summer and it has been a great experience. It is a true "egg hunt" everyday when we go to collect the quail eggs as they don't lay in a laying box like chickens - they lay eggs wherever they feel like it that day.
Practices
We collect our eggs daily and clean water and feed every other day. The quail have a nice little home with a house on one end and a big run that goes into an outdoor playground. They have a netted coop because they are flyers. We feed them high protein game bird food. We wash the eggs per the guidelines of the CSU extension office, package, label and refrigerate.
