RareBreedAuctions.com is dedicated to preserving America’s rare and heritage breeds of poultry and livestock. We believe that the best way to save these breeds is to create a market for these animals where buyers and sellers can meet and bargain in a fair and professional environment facilitated by state-of-the-art technology. RareBreedAuctions.com is committed to providing that opportunity to you, the buyer or seller of rare breeds.

Other auction sites created by livestock experts have failed the test of time due to a lack of technical proficiency and poor customer service. At RareBreedAuctions.com, we specialize in raising livestock, but we also make our living in developing and maintaining customer relationships through online communication.

We are committed to building a strong and ethical community that allows members to sell and bid with confidence. We pledge to be responsive, helpful and friendly to our members and guests, and we encourage you to tell us about your experiences so that we can continuously improve our service.

We welcome you to our community and look forward to meeting your needs.

Jumbo Pharaoh Coturnix Quail Hatching Eggs. Ready for incubation.

This listing is for 24 Jumbo Pharaoh (Egyptian) Coturnix Quail Hatching Eggs. My eggs come fresh from the nests within 24 hours of shipping. I never wash my eggs since that promotes bacterial contamination inside the shell. Soiled eggs are discarded, and eggs for shipping are checked for cracks and candled to ensure quality. I never sell old or damaged eggs. These are beautiful birds and among the largest variety of quail. At maturity, some will weigh near one pound (16oz). The females are a but larger than the males, typically.

Please know the dangers of purchasing hatching eggs online. USPS is not gentle with shipments, despite the fragile stickers on the packages. Parcels that are damaged may have reduced hatching rates. Eggs are packed in shipping foam, wrapped in bubble wrap, and surrounded by packing peanuts. Rest assured, I take no chances!

If you haven't raised quail before, then you are in for a treat! They are quiet, even when they crow. They are friendly, and begin laying eggs in just 8 weeks! There are a few things to note if you are a first-time hatcher:

1. Low protein starter should be ground in a food processor until it resembles a coarse powder. These birds are super tiny when they hatch, with high mortality rates, so grinding their food makes it more accessible to them. They will struggle to eat regular crumbles. You should grind their food for the first two weeks.

2. These birds drown easily during the first two weeks. It might as well be in their job description. Put marbles into the water dish. They will still be able to drink by dipping their beaks between the marbles, but this way they cannot fall in. And they will try. Believe me.

3. Quail need space to live, but not as much as most birds. Plan on a minimum of one square foot per bird.

4. These little dudes can jump! Don't be surprised if you open your brooder during the first week and several try to make a break for it.

Please review the pictures above. All the photos are my own. Rest assured, these eggs come from a healthy flock of well-fed, clean quail. The eggs will be shipped in medium density foam, wrapped in bubble wrap, and surrounded by packing peanuts to help ensure a safe arrival. If you have questions regarding this item, just let me know.

Thanks for looking!

By registering as a member you agree to abide by our Code of Conduct, and any violations of the Code of Conduct will result in being banned from this site and such other legal action as may be required. The Code of Conduct is as follows:

  1. A person may not create multiple accounts.
  2. A seller may not bid on his or her own auction and may not coordinate with family and friends to do so.
  3. A winning bid creates a legally binding contact, and winning bidders are required to pay the seller. If you have questions about an animal being auctioned the time to ask those questions is well before the close of the auction. Doubts, unanswered questions, second-guessing, an unanticipated or sudden change in personal circumstances, or buyer's remorse are not valid reasons for a winning bidder to refuse to pay after an auction closes.
  4. Read the text of the auction carefully before you bid. Once you bid your bid cannot be undone. Your bid is a legally binding offer to the seller, and if you are the high bidder your offer is automatically accepted and becomes a legally binding contract under which you are obligated to pay the seller.
  5. Sellers may not use other people's photos, breed descriptions, or trade names without their express written permission. Copyright violations are not allowed.
  6. Sellers must accurately describe the animal they are selling including the pedigree of the animal.
  7. When giving feedback a person must accurately describe the facts that support the feedback rating.

  9. A person may not send profane or harassing messages about an auction.
  10. A seller advertising imported poultry must be prepared to provide a copy of the USDA import permit proving the legal importation of the poultry. Only legally imported poultry may be sold at auction.
  11. A seller or buyer may not use an auction or RBA-related tools to negotiate direct sales outside of an auction. This includes asking buyers to "gift" money via PayPal.
  12. A seller may not pre-sell hatching eggs or day-old chicks with a shipment date more than four weeks after the auction ends.
  13. This is a community. Be POLITE and courteous. If you are rude, you may be asked to leave.
  14. A seller will comply with all relevant government regulations including those related to the shipping of live birds and NPIP compliance.
