Abstract

Both the Japanese and Bobwhite quail are important species for biomedical, toxicological and basic biological research. In view of their rapid maturation, high reproductive rate in captivity, and other physiological characteristics, these species have been and will continue to be used successfully as model avian species. This short reviews describes caging, environmental, and feed requirements for Japanese and Bobwhite quail maintained in captivity. Information on egg collection, incubation, care of young, handling, blood collection and common diseases are discussed.
