OT Farms

Quail Eggs - dozen


Perfect addition to ramen or other soups, we also love to play with quail fried quail eggs in appetizers, salads, and any recipe that calls for regular chicken eggs.

Quail eggs contain more fat and protein by weight, double the iron and riboflavin, and about one-third more vitamin B12 than chicken eggs.

The Quail on OT Farm are raised locally in California, and these eggs are a very special, rare treat. We only get a small allocation each week, if any at all, so try them while you can!

Mother Earth News April/May 2007 ""How Do Your Eggs Stack Up?

We have 7 different breeds of hens here at the ranch: Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, Golden Sex-Link, Buff Orpington, Black Sex-Link, Americauna, and Black Australop.  They all produce a slightly different shade of brown shell; then we have the Ameracaunas who produce an egg with a green, blue or pink shell.  They are nick named the ""Easter Egg Hen"".

Each morning shortly after sun up the coop doors are opened and the girls (hens) come outside to roam, scratch and hunt for bugs and grubs. The girls enjoy the lush pasture grass and the daily routine of natural chicken behavior; dust baths, sunning, scratching for grubs and laying eggs. At some point during the day; normally in the morning hours, each hen goes back into the coop on her own accord to lay her precious egg. Then it's back outside for the rest of the afternoon. At dusk the girls naturally want to roost some place safe for the night. They go back into the coop on their own to settle in for the night. Once all the girls are safe and sound in their coop; we close the doors to keep them protected from predators for the night. Goodnight Girls!
