There are several breeds of quails that are suitable for farming in India, and each breed has unique characteristics that make it suitable for different farming systems. Some of the common quail breeds in India are:

  • Bobwhite Quail: Bobwhite quails are a native breed of North America, and they are popular for their meat and eggs.

Housing is crucial for successful quail bird farming, and it plays a significant role in the birds’ health, growth, and productivity. The housing system should provide adequate space, ventilation, light, and protection from predators and adverse weather conditions. Some of the common housing systems used in quail rearing are:

  • Deep Litter System: In this system, the floor of the house is covered with a deep layer of litter material, such as sawdust, paddy husk, or straw. The litter material absorbs the birds’ droppings, providing a clean and comfortable environment for the birds.
  • Cage System: In this system, the birds are kept in cages made of wire mesh or bamboo. The cages should be spacious enough to allow the birds to move freely and access food and water easily.

Feeding is an essential aspect of quail rearing, and a balanced diet is necessary for the birds’ growth, health, and productivity. Quails are omnivorous birds and can feed on both plant and animal-based foods. A typical quail diet should contain a combination of grains, protein sources, vitamins, and minerals. Some of the common feeds used in quail farming are:

  • Commercial Feed: Commercial quail feed is readily available in the market and contains all the essential nutrients required for the birds’ growth and productivity.
  • Homemade Feed: Homemade quail feed can be prepared using a combination of grains, such as wheat, maize, and sorghum, and protein sources, such as soybean meal and fish meal.

Breeding is an essential aspect of quail farming, and it involves selecting the best birds for breeding and providing the right conditions for egg production and hatching. Quails reach sexual maturity at 6-8 weeks of age, and they can lay eggs throughout the year. The breeding process involves the following steps:

  • Selection of Breeding Stock: The breeding stock should be selected based on their growth, health, and productivity. Only the best birds should be selected for breeding.
  • Egg Production: The female quails should be provided with a balanced diet and adequate lighting to promote egg production.
  • Incubation: The eggs should be collected and stored in a clean and dry environment before they are placed in an incubator for hatching.

Care and Management:

Proper care and management are necessary for successful quail bird farming, and it involves regular monitoring of the birds’ health, nutrition, and environment. The following are some essential care and management practices in quail farming:

  • Vaccination: Vaccination is essential to prevent birds from contracting diseases such as Newcastle disease, coccidiosis, and avian influenza.
  • Regular Cleaning: The housing and feeding equipment should be cleaned regularly to maintain hygiene and prevent the birds from contracting diseases.
  • Proper Lighting: Quails require adequate lighting to promote egg production, and farmers should provide at least 14 -16 hours of light per day.

Marketing is an essential aspect of any business, including quail farming, and farmers should have a marketing plan to sell their products. The following are some marketing strategies that farmers can use:

  • Direct Sales: Farmers can sell their products directly to consumers through farmer’s markets, online platforms, or local shops.
  • Wholesale: Farmers can sell their products to wholesalers who can distribute them to retailers or large markets.

Advantages of Quail Farming in India:

Quail farming has several advantages over other poultry farming practices, and some of them are:

  • Low Investment: Quail farming requires low investment, making it a suitable option for small-scale farmers and entrepreneurs.
  • High-Profit Margin: Quail farming has a high-profit margin due to its fast growth rate, high egg production, and good meat quality.
  • Less Space Requirement: Quails require less space than chickens, making them an ideal option for backyard farming.

  • So, the commercial Farm requires little investment and management.

Quil farming requires low investment labor, little knowledge about farm management. Besides, this farming business is suitable for beginners. Due to this fact, it is becoming more popular worldwide. 

Suitable Temperature, Light, and Humidity for Rising Quails

These birds can grow indoors. So you can control the temperature, humidity, and light. Here is what it requires to become successful —

Temperature:  

The suitable Temperature of backyard quail farming is 21 to 32 Celsius (69.8 ° – 89.6 ° Fahrenheit).

But depending on varieties, they may become sufferers from heat stress at a different temperature. We found that our birds feel comfortable in between 22-25 Celsius.

Quails egg production is very dependent on light. Therefore, lack of light can decrease egg production. Now, light can be achieved by using electric bulbs and sunlight.

In general, they require 16 hours of lighting (including daylight and artificial light).

This is necessary, here’s what you can do- 

  • The newly born baby birds do not survive in cold temperatures. They require 13 hours of light till they become seventh weeks older. And increase the lighting time gradually to 16 hours from the seven weeks. So, you need to increase the lighting by one hour every week.
  • So, you need to ensure temperature using light in a separate case(brooder). 
  • Light is crucial for egg development. This means, for 16 hours of light, you have to use artificial lights.

Note that: With a 40-watt bulb, 10 square centimeters of space can be illuminated. And, we found that egg production increases in red color light compared to blue.

This bird can adapt to 40-70% relative humidity. However, the relative humidity of the house is 55-60% good.

If the relative humidity is higher, their feather will be moist, causing respiratory problems and increasing the chance of fungus. If the relative humidity is less, then their feathers will become rough.

Choose the Best Rearing Method

The size of cages is somewhat different for different from each other. Learn how to build the best habitat for your birds. 

Here we will describe the starter cage size and measurement. There are another two types of cages used in commercial quail housekeeping. We will represent them in the relevant sections. 

Now, to build a low-cost quail house, the following points should be kept in mind.

  • Ensure a comfortable environment for birds.
  • Ensure natural light-air and keep it under control as needed.
  • Ability to protect the birds from extreme winter, hot or rain, and damp conditions.
  • Construction of houses in a specific distance and required size.
  • Construct different rooms for different ages of quails.
  • It is necessary to take proper action beforehand to avoid any bad smell due to the bird’s stomach and urine.

The entire Laying nest  and  Brooder cage  are essential for layer & breeder quail raising.

Appropriate Cages for Layer Quail raising:

Cages for Layer Quail raising

  • Each cell is about six ft. long and one ft. wide and divided into six parts.
  • For utilizing the space, you can build up to 6-story cages. Also, keep at least 8- 10 cm distance between two stories.
  • And use moveable wooden parts at the lower part to separate them so that the birds can be cleaned.
  • Place a long narrow water pot in front of the cage.
  • Typically, 10-12 birds are fed in each cage by commercially producing eggs.
  • For the breeding, one male and three female quails are kept in this cage.

Appropriate Cages for Broiler Quail Raising:

This types of housing are designed for raiseing meat quails. You can house 6 birds in every square foot.

Cages for Broiler Quail raising

For the broiler quails  farming method , your goal of rearing birds is to sell them as poultry meat. That is why to gain weight. The bird needs to be kept in a smaller space.

  • After two weeks, Quails can be kept in the cage for rearing.
  • It helps to increase physical weight, because of this it is possible to avoid excessive roaming of birds.

Here is the recommended cage size for different ages.

How To Build A Laying Nest:

The primary function of a laying nest is to provide a solution for egg-laying quails.

EGG Laying Nest for Quail

Egg Laying house (egg-laying shade) built separately for each or shared for multiple birds.

Note : Each bird will need approximately 15 cm of personal space in an egg-laying nest.

  • To build a private laying nest, you can use 15cm Wide, 20cm deep boxes.
  • However, we use 30x30cm boxes on our farm, as we found that these are more suitable for them.
  • And in the case of the shared nest for 25-30 birds, use 1-1.5 meters wide, 30cm deep boxes.

However, you can increase the height depending on the light source. As we have mentioned earlier, these birds require light for 16 hours a day. So, consider the overheating issue.

This is important,

A separate egg-laying nest is vital in a commercial poultry farming setup. It will prevent them from destroying eggs. Also, egg-laying birds require extra care.

Guideline for Collecting Quails:

Now, when the housing is ready, it’s time to collect quails. Again, collecting high-quality seed birds is so crucial.

Unless you are not willing to buy baby chicks every time there is a new batch, you should consider choosing high-quality birds. Productive parents will produce healthy chicks continuously.

If you want to start gradually, pick six to eight pairs of birds. Or you can choose more than that.

However, if you don’t have any previous experience raising poultry (chicken, duck, or any) — don’t start with more than 5-6 pairs.

Take your time to get some hands-on experiences first.

The ultimate checklist before and after for buying quality quails.

  • Clean the shade properly. Check every component, especially the electronics parts.
  • And buy the best quality quails from an established farmer.
  • If you collect 2/3 days babies, You need to store them in the brooder for one or two additional days.
  • After that, Place them into rearing shade.
  • Now, keep an eye on weak chicks. If it is needed, place them again into the brooder. Learn  how to make brooder here  and  Brooding principles .

Essential Equipment and Materials for the Farm:

There are several tools and materials required to handle these organic farms, as follows:

  • Brooder Hover,
  • Heater / Stove,
  • Plastic Tick Feed Tray,
  • Water pots,
  • Egg-laying boxes,
  • Electric bulbs,
  • Defaults or balances for taking weight measurements,
  • Buckets, a shovel, spade, bowls, a knife, baskets, peal, tulle, etc.
  • Egg-laying house. These are the boxes for constructing egg laying cage..
  • Bamboo, wood, corrugated, polythene, or triple.
  • Thermometer, hypermeter and,
  •  Battery or Brooder.

The following are some of the essential tools for food management are described below-

There will be a high-quality food serving dish;

  • It can easily be filled with foods.
  • And, easily cleanable.

Water or drunker:

Whether the cage or liters are performed in the same manner, the characteristics of a potter’s water pot are as follows:

  • Birds will get a clean water supply from it.
  • It will be easy to drink water.
  • Cleaning will be easy.
  • Durable and cheaper.

Farm management: General Caring methods of Qualis

To get adequate production from quail farming, each farmer must study the details of farm management.

Even minor negligence or defects is enough for the failure of farms. So, farmers, please become extra careful.

Pain or Stress Removal:  

Remember this as a result of stress, the production decreases severely, and sometimes it can even result in death.

To get good production from your farm, ensure the certainly comfortable environment that they will cherish. I have discussed this later in this article.

Food and water management:

Food and water management needs to be correct. If they have adequate food and water for each bird, they will relish the food and water.

Egg collection:  

Collect eggs at least two times a day. The typical evening is 6: 00-6: 30pm and the second night is from 9.00 – 9.30pm.

Egg Storing:  

It must be stored immediately after the collection of eggs. Reserve temperature and relative humidity are 12.8 ° -15.5 ° C, respectively. (55.0 ° – 59.9 ° F) and 75-80%.

After the deletion of a hatchery from the eggs produced by a family or commercially managed farm, it is necessary to have sex or sexual intercourse as soon as possible.

Lip cutting or debeaking:

Debeaking is an essential factor in quail farm management. Debugging is to remove a specific part of the lip and nails.

Reproducing Baby Quails:

There are two different ways that you can hatch quails eggs. One is a natural procedure, and the second one is using commercially built quails incubators. We have published a review on the  best quails incubator .

Common Diseases

One of the benefits of quail celebrations is that they are less affected by disease than poultry. But, We are not saying that there are no diseases at all.

They do not have to vaccinate for any disease. The reason behind this is, they do not have fatal infections.

The most common diseases of chicken can affect these miniature birds. They can be affected by — viruses, bacteria, fungus, microplasma, parasites, malnutrition, management defects. And conceptive problems can lead to various diseases.

Daily Feeding Process

In commercial farms, you have to feed them three times a daily. We provide food at 6 am, 12-1 pm and 7 pm on our farm.

General Feeding Process in an Organic Quail Farm:

Like other poultry, daily food must contain six nutrients, such as water, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

To run a thriving quail farming company, you must give your birds a balanced diet. The adult eat 20-30 grams of food each day. So, the overall feed management is also cheaper.

Quails require a higher protein diet. Good feed not only keeps the birds healthy and productive, but it also helps them avoid diseases.

Here is the tips on what feed them.

  • They are very small, so you have to provide powdered foods.
  • Moreover, clean all food and water pots using organic germicide.
  • Ensure sufficient water and food for each bird.
  • Remember, at the age of 5 weeks, quails eat about 500 grams of food,
  • 6 months old quails eat 30-35 grams of food every day and,
  • For laying 12 eggs, they need around 400 grams of the food.
  • Make a balanced diet rich in the required nutrients.
  • For any reason, don’t supply fungus-affected feeds.
  • Don’t supply dried fish, mussels, wheat.
  • And don’t provide until they ultimately finish the last meal. This will help minimize the food waste.

How and What to Feed Depending on Age:

Use this chart to make 5 kg of starter mash using oil to feed 75 times.

On average, every adult bird needs only 8 kg of food per year. You have to provide the exact amount of feeds for them.

*To determine, daily required foods for quail farming, multiply the weight of the feed by the number of birds.

This chart demonstrates daily needs of a single bird. 

How to Ensure Maximum Productivity ?

To get the desired product from the farm, you should take care of the following factors.

  • Collecting healthy birds.
  • Always buy the baby birds from a well-established hatchery.
  • From the 1st day of birth, ensure the right temperature, light, food, and water for them in the brooder.
  • The regular productivity-raising formula for layers is: “Provide pure water and daily 13-16 hours of light.”
  • Plus, provide adequate air circulation in the bird’s house.
  • Always keep the houses and cages clean and clean.
  • And please do not disturb them by any means.

Bedding Materials: Litter and It’s Management Procedure

In a word, the bed used in the quail bards room to make the accommodation comfortable is called litter.

However, building comfortable bedding is not costly. However, it is susceptible, which generally affects the production directly.

First, I will provide a guideline to make a bed. Then, describe the proper management process.

How to Create Litter for Quails ?

  • In the beginning, spread 5 cm thick litter material on a clean floor.
  • Then gradually add more litter material, and increase the thickness to 10 cm in 4-5 weeks.
  • In the case of a brooder foster child, before placing quails, put 10 cm thick litter.

Materials for Creating Litter Bed: 

Generally, as a litter, Rice husk, Wood powder, Paddy or wheat dry, Straw, Wood Stove, Nuts powder, etc., are used.

Bactericide and its use:

The role of disinfectant is very important in protecting the health of the harmful and sterile environment in the growth of the quail residence.

Various experiments have shown that no bactericide is functioning alone. So, anyone who uses antibiotics such as heat (sunlight), coal-tas-derivatives, chlorine, formaldehyde, copper sulfate, etc. should be used.

Reproducing Baby Quails

500 females can give birth to 1500-2000 quails.

At the age of  7-9th week , they started laying eggs. In that time, typically  60-70%  of female quail lay eggs.

To lay eggs, keep the male and female quails together at 8-10 weeks of age male. And maintain a ratio of  male birds: female birds  at the of  1: 5 . That means, for every male, there will be five females.

They generally occupy  18 days  on eggs in hatching and give birth to baby quails.

baby quails

Newborn babies are fragile and vulnerable to diseases. So, you have to ensure a  healthier hatching case .

To ensure a healthier environment in hatching,   spray excellent and effective bacterial spray immediately after scattering fresh litter material. However, perform these 2 – 3 days before moving the child into the brooder.

Re-production Time Caring Tips:

  • If there is a lack of vitamins and minerals, the newborn quail’s leg can be lean and weak. So ensure vitamins and minerals.
  • Male birds some time quarrel with them. So, do not take it lightly because female birds are much weaker at that stage.
  • And feed them separately. Moreover, always keep an eye on them when they are hatching.

Raising Baby Quail:

  • Generally, the weight of baby quails is about 8-10g. As a result, they require more warmth. 
  • But, lack of adequate warmth and intense cold gathering kids gather in one place, leading toward increased mortality.
  • And always protect them from rats and other harmful animals.

How to Make a Brooder For Baby Quails

One-day-old children are usually raised in to of a brooder. That ensures the right temperature, light for them.

brooder

The brooder has a heat source, such as an electric heater, electric bulb, kerosene lamp, chaff-wood or coal lamp, light lamps, or infrared bulb. But infrared bulbs are the most scientific.

  • Generally, the broader has a shade that is known as hover.
  • However, It can be square, rectangular, hexagonal, or round.
  • And the broader hover can be built with GI pips, bamboo, or wood..

Inside, the brooder builds a 15cm round fence so that the kids can adequately take food and water inside the brooder and stay in one place.

This circular ring is called  Chik Guard.  You can make it   with tin, tea, hardboard, or thick paper.

Brooding principles:

All kinds of brooding make for layers or broiler are similar. During breeding, be aware of the following. For example,

  • Maintain the right temperature,
  • Ensuring enough light,
  • Ventilation system.
  • Baby quail density (number)/ area.
  • Food and water management.
  • Healthy environment, etc.

Artificial Brooding Equipments:

Making an artificial brooding is straightforward. However, if you want to make a brooder, you will require these tools.

  • Browder or baby tempering device,
  • Chick guard/brooder or baby diversion,
  • Broom furnace or heater,
  • Liter or bed,
  • Thermometer,
  • Hygrometer and,
  • Food and water pot.

Considerations for Child Transfers:

If it demands more than three hours for the transferal, mix glucose with some melon or boiling green pepper pieces. And spread it in the box. That will protect the child from water disorders.

  • Transport must be cleaned properly and inside of the bacteria.
  • Boxes cannot be higher than three levels.
  • In the two layers of the box, 10 cm The distance should be maintained.
  • And, assure enough clean air for the child.

Quail Farming Business Plan

Before starting a  quail farm  for commercial purposes, the next thing you have to carate is the business plan.

However, if you follow all the steps we mentioned here, we will start an organic farm. Because it is too easy to maintain this farm organically, and there is no other alternative.

There are several benefits of producing an organic product. First, this cultivation opens a broad area of consumer affection. So there will be apparent demand in your locality.

So, create an appropriate business plan and keep these points when making a policy.

  • How and Where to sell, Which varieties have more demand?
  • Then, How much to grow?
  • Do you want eggs or meats? or both?
  • Competitors Analysis.

But you know every local or small-scale business involves some common difficulties. The challenge for you will be Marketing. So let’s determine that in  the marketing plan for quail farming .

Marketing Plan for Quail Farming Business

Retailing is a very critical part of a wealthy quail bird farming business. So, the first step you need to make is finding out the demand in the marketplace. Generally, eggs have more market than meats.

  • Does organic food has particular interest among the people?
  • Is there any demand?

First, try to determine the demands of quail products in your local market.

Now, without concerning immeasurable marketing abilities, you will not make the most profit from your business.

Raising quail is easy,

Firstly, These poultry birds are adorable, and the eggs look different also beautiful too. By the way, when you are the newest farmer.

You can ask your relatives and friends for help. Social media is one other place to hang on. Meet the people in your area.

And, tell them the benefits of eggs and meat by placing posters around your area.

Note: Inform the people about your products and ask them to tell others.

Now, you can also distribute leaflets. And, you don’t have to bother much about marketing again when your farm is famous. Here, This may take time but do not skip this.

Quail Production: A profitable business

quail farming business plan in hindi

In the past decade, commercial quail production witnessed tremendous growth in our country and became viable alternate farming due to their delicious meat and rich nutritive value. During this period, a number of breeding-cum-commercial quail units were established dealing with the production of specialized meat and egg type strains to meet the needs of quail growers. This study tries to overcome the major constraints of quail farming by addressing the best management practices, and disease prevention strategies for quail farming.

Quail is a small game bird mostly found in the European and North African regions of the world. This bird is considered to nest on the ground and is noticed for its stocky structure and short legs. The bird has a varied plumage and is often raised for its eggs and meat. It is believed that Japanese people started farming the birds and revealed the domestic raising methods to the entire world. Now, many countries do commercial Quail farming business for meat and egg production. The meat and eggs of Quail are tasty and nutritious when compared to poultry eggs that is the reason for its great demand. This business is considered easy and flexible and profitable. It requires less capital investment and labour. Almost any type of weather condition is suitable for Quail farming and the most important fact is it can be raised along with other birds successfully, but with a little risk factor. This Quail farming project report describes the farming methods and requirements, at the end of the report one can find the cost of starting a Quail business farm and the profit associated with it .

Some benefits associated with Quail farming are:

  • Small birds so need less space

Quail Farming Project Report  – Life cycle of a Quail

From the egg to a grown up Quail there are many stages of growth which have to be taken care of during the rearing process. The different stages of Quail are described here:

  • Optimum laying is observed when light is provided for 18 hours.
  • Eggs that are smooth with a matt shell should be incubated.
  • Eggs which are 10 days old should not be incubated.
  • Before incubation eggs can be stored at 15˚C.
  • The incubation period is for 16 to 18 days.
  • Static hatching chambers or incubator with static ventilation is best suited for this purpose.
  • Temperature for incubation should be around 38.5-39˚C with a humidity of 55-60% for 14 days. The humidity can be increased to 70% after the 14 th
  • The eggs should be turned every single day.
  • The eggs are fragile during the first 3 days, so the incubator should not be disturbed.
  • 85-90% of the fertilized eggs hatch on the 16 th or 18 th
  • Deformity rate is estimated to be 10% due to consanguinity.
  • The hatching incubator should not be opened until 15 th
  • The day old chicks weigh around 5-6 g.
  • They should remain in the incubator for 24 hours for drying.
  • No feed is required during this period.
  • Growth appears fast during the beginning days and feathers on the 3rd day.
  • Overcrowding should be avoided.
  • Quails of different ages are separately raised.
  • The temperature of the brooder should be around 38-40˚C.
  • After 3 days the temperature of the brooder should be reduced by 1˚C.
  • Feeder length should be around 120 cm and waterer should be 40 cm.
  • Huddling is an indication of low temperature in the brooder.
  • Three weeks after the growing period the Quails are placed in a proper housing system and are raised there until seventh week.
  • Birds of the same age are housed together.
  • Small Quail farms use newspapers or metal trays under the cage for disposal of waste.
  • Bedding material in the Quail farm can be replaced before the next batch of hatching begins.
  • The mortality rate during fattening is 10%.
  • The birds with good fattening ability are used as breeders.
  • When the Quails attain 45-50 days and gain 160-180 g weight they are strangulated.
  • The parts are plucked and the skin is removed for selling it in the market.

Quail lay eggs all year round and the count is higher during February and September. The female bird starts reproducing from week 6, but preferably 8 week old Quail birds are considered to produce fertile eggs. Once eggs are found in the farm, the breeding groups are created. The Quail doesn’t sit on the eggs to incubate them. Therefore the eggs are incubated artificially and it takes around 16-19 days for the eggs to hatch.

Quail Eggs.

Quail Farming Project Report – Housing facilities for Quail Farming

Housing for the Quail birds is an important component of Quail farming business and they can be either housed in cages or in houses built exclusively for these birds. These birds prefer dry climate, but can survive low temperatures as well.  A Quail pen can be created with chicken wire and should have smaller mesh size with a top cover. Cage rearing is the most preferable housing system for these birds. Care should be taken to have only one male bird with five female birds in the cage house. Quail birds have a characteristic feature of jumping to a height of 20-30 cm and scratching the earth to find insects. Except during migration or while escaping predators, these birds don’t fly. Farm house should have a special arrangement if these birds were to fly and take big leaps otherwise they would hurt their heads or get injured. Therefore the height of the cage should be properly designed and should range in between 25 cm to 2 m.

Sometimes Quail birds show aggressive behavior and peck other birds in the cage on their head, which results in bleeding from the head. Under such circumstances the birds should be isolated for a day or two until their behavior becomes normal. The most important housing systems for Quail are:

  • The house is 2 m high with good ventilation and a big wide door.
  • It is made of banco or cement and covered with straw, iron or any other material depending on farmer’s resources.
  • Bedding on the floor is optional, but commonly used bedding materials are 5-10 cm of moss, sawdust or wood shavings.
  • For brooding 160 birds for 4 weeks the average dimensions of the house should be about 2 m x 1 m x 2 m or same house can be sufficient for 80 adult Quail birds.
  • If the floor space is large then it can be split into smaller areas such that it can accommodate 6 birds/m² i.e. having one male and 5 female birds.
  • It is estimated that a floor space of 4 x 8 m can have 8 bird houses of the above mentioned dimensions.
  • The house should have a place for nests where the birds can lay eggs.
  • Constructing small boxes with branches on the floor or putting some bricks can facilitate nesting. The minimum dimensions of the box can be about 20 x 20 x 15 cm.
  • Light should be made available in the house at least for 16-18 hours in a day to ensure proper laying cycles. Places with good sunlight can have buildings exposed to the sun.
  • Solar lights are most preferred to oil lamps or any other light forms.
  • Mostly used in urban and sub-urban areas due to less space available.
  • Cages should not be multi-floored otherwise it may cause stress in the birds.
  • Cages should be properly spaced for air circulation and can have one or two floors.
  • Cages should be placed inside a building to protect the Quail birds from external factors like sun, wind and rain.
  • Cages are made of white wood and chicken wire.
  • For wooden construction planks should be used such that they can be replaced upon the damage.
  • Cages exclusively made of chicken wire are more durable because they are easy to clean and disinfect when compared to wooden cages.
  • The cage should have a wooden bottom and a horizontal floor with 5˚ inclination.
  • Chicken wire mesh cages for the Quail chicks should be covered with paper so as not to injure the chicks. For these small baby birds the wire mesh spacing should not be more than 7 mm and for grown up birds the mesh space can be around 1.5 cm.
  • The minimum dimensions of the cage are 1 x 0.5 x 0.5 or 2 x 0. 5 x 0.5 such that it can accommodate 40 laying birds, 80 brooder birds for 4 weeks or 20 adult species.
  • The cage can be created with a sand bath of dimensions 30 x 35 cm so as to make the Quail less aggressive. Sand bath and nesting box can be preferably attached to the outer part of the cage.

In any kind of livestock farming, feed represents almost 70% of the cost of rearing and Quail also needs good and nutritious food for growth and development. The main food for the Quails is maize, millets and sorghum. The food and water for the Quails should be clean and fresh. The feed should always be stored in a dry, cool place so that it is protected from mites, pests and rodents. Feed older than 2 months should be avoided because there could be a risk of health problems in Quails. Food like lettuce, apple, cabbage, banana, papaya, carrots, rice, cooked pasta, etc. can be provided to the Quails and the feeders should be cleaned thoroughly thereafter. Some other feed ingredients that can be given to the birds are broken wheat, sesame cake, kipper fish, rice bran, broken oyster shell, salt and mineral mix. Each stage of the Quail needs a different quantity of high-protein feed such as:

  • Starter feed should have 25-28% protein with 1% calcium and 0.5% phosphorous. Also, it should be finely ground before feeding the Quails.
  • Quails of 5 weeks age are given ground shells or limestone as calcium substitute.
  • Feeding Quails with insects like termites fly larvae and mealworms can increase the protein and energy content in their feed.

Insufficient food for the Quails can bring violence in their behavior and such behavior is controlled by providing more feed. Care for the food should be taken if the birds are being raised for using them in remedies. Chemical or antibiotics should not be given to such birds.

Trough for the baby Quails should be half filled with pebbles and marbles so that these birds do not drown in them. Each water trough should be 0.6 cm away from the Quail.  If nipple waterers are used then one nipple waterer should serve five Quails. There should be clean and fresh water available for the birds and the waterers should be cleaned regularly. The water should not be too warm otherwise it can cause pathogenic agents to multiply. Water should not contain any particle of the feed in it and it is advised to add a drop of methylene blue to the water once in a week to purify it. Maintaining the feeders and waterers clean is highly essential for good health of the Quails and these should be bleached using sodium hydrochloride in warm water. Disinfectants should be used to clean the feed equipment once in every month to keep the Quails disease free.

Generally the risk behind farming Quail with other poultry birds is that they contract disease from the poultry birds like the avian cholera, variola, new castle’s disease, flu, etc. So, the birds should be treated every 2-3 months with anti-parasitic drug for preventing the occurrence of these diseases. Within 3 weeks of birth the Quail has a risk of aspergillosis caused by fungi in the grains. The symptoms of the disease are shortness of breath due to yellow or green deposits in the trachea. Before administering any medicine the advice of the vet is important. During the growing stages the Quail may suffer from coccidiosis and enteritis and both these diseases can cause death, there increasing the mortality rate of the birds. The symptoms of the diseases are bloody diarrhoea and less appetite. They can be cured by Terramycin. Disinfecting the cages is highly important and all the other Quails should be administered with streptomycin and calcium. Salmonella bacteria can cause diarrhoea, respiratory disorder etc. and can be fatal. The best way to protect the Quails from this disease is vaccinating them properly. Hygiene on the farm can prevent most of the diseases and can lead to better production and profit.

For good management and productivity of the Quail farm, maintaining a record of farm activities is highly important and necessary. Events such as the birth, death or loss, removals, total egg count, eggs sold and no. of Quails purchased along with their dates should be recorded for reference. There should be a record of treatments, vaccinations and other medical activities with their exact dates. Similarly, the expenditure and income of the farm should also be recorded. If the farm has an incubator then the details associated with it such as eggs hatched, temperature, date etc. should all be noted down separately.

Cost and profit analysis of Quail Farming / Quail Farming Project Report / Economics of Quail Farming

Quail Farm.

The estimation of a small farm with 2000 Quail birds as input every week is considered and the investment is calculated. The output of the farm is considered to be 1800 Quails every week. Therefore, yearly input of Quail chicks is 1, 04,000 and the output marketable Quails are 93,600 after a 10 % mortality rate. The values shown here are just assumptions and should be taken as reference only.

Cost of construction per sq ft: Rs 200.

The space required by each bird: 0.15 sq ft.

Cost of day old Quail chick: Rs 10 (may vary depending on the species)

Cost of feed per kg: Rs 20.

Mortality rate: 10%

Feed consumption per bird: 600 g

Expenses for one batch in a week:

Therefore the cost for 52 batches of chicks around the year: 28, 08,000.00.

Sale price of Quails: Rs 40/ bird.

Income from the sale of 1800 Quails in a week: Rs 72,000.00.

Income generated per annum from 52 batches: Rs 37, 44,000.00.

The annual profit from the farm is around: 9, 36,000.00.

It is important to note that the project has not discussed anything about the sale of eggs or gunny bags or manure from the farm. These things can be a source of additional income

Like any other livestock farming business it is important to consult the nearest agriculture or animal husbandry office for details regarding a particular business for the exact amount of subsidy values. But it is believed that NABARD doesn’t give loans or subsidies for Quail farming (check with the firm for exact details).

In India it is considered that Quail farming and sale require a license from the government. There are some conditions laid down for Quail farming business in India so it is advisable to check with the responsible department before investing into this sector. All these conditions have been implemented because Quail belongs to the category of protected species. Some of the conditions laid down for Quail farming are:

  • Quails should be brought from a licensed trader.
  • The Quail farm area should be 4.5 to 5 km from forest areas.
  • Quails should not be raised near water logged areas.
  • The farm should have sanitation, hygiene and proper maintenance.
  • The farm should be properly fenced.
  • The farm holder should have an identity card to start the business and get a license.

Starting Quail Farming Business Plan (PDF)

Quail farming business plan

A quail is any of the different types of small to medium-sized game birds of the genera Coturnix , Anurophasis or Perdicula . Over the years, people have explored rearing quail as a farming venture. Quail farming continues to steadily pick up momentum in various parts of the world. Quail farming is relatively hassle-free and low-cost to start. That is one of the reasons why more and more people are taking it up. Think of quail farming as a miniaturized version of poultry farming. That gives you an idea of how easier and cheaper it is to do; profitable as well. Quail farming is a very profitable business, and many people are making money all over the world by raising quail birds and selling the meat and eggs. Quails have a good taste and are regarded as highly nutritious. The quail eggs are packed with a lot of essential nutrients needed by the body. Quail eggs are more nutritious than chicken eggs. The demand for quail birds and quail eggs is high . Quails can be raised for meat, or for laying eggs, or both. However, to build a successful, sustainable Quail poultry farming business, you require sufficient knowledge of how to efficiently raise the birds, good management skills, and a good quail farming business plan. This article will outline how to start a Quail farming business, and the quail farming business plan (PDF, Word and Excel).

Quail poultry farming is a lucrative business, but there are some essential decisions you need to make before you venture into the business. You have to decide on the size of your project i.e. the number of quail birds you want to keep per cycle; location of the business, products (eggs, meat or both), and your target market. These choices will be affected by the amount of capital you have, and the needs your target  market.  If you do not have a lot of capital, you can always start small and grow your business overtime. You also need to carry out market research (Who are you going to sell the quail birds to? At what price?) and write a business plan before you venture into the business of raising quails.

Business Model

Quails are raised primarily for meat and egg production. Those are the direct revenue streams you can focus on. However, there are other diversifications you can consider – just like it is in poultry production. For instance, you can realize revenue from selling fertilized eggs. You can also make money from selling day old chicks. In most parts of the world, quail farming is not yet widespread. In some places, quail farming is not yet existent. As such, that creates a market for fertilized eggs and day old chicks. You can even go further to doing training on quail farming programs where people pay to participate. Another possible, but less widespread use of quail is as pets. That means you can sell quail to people looking to have them as pets or for ornamental purposes in general.

Land, Housing and Equipment

The kind of housing you need and the size of the land will depend on the size of your quail farming project. When choosing the location for your quail farming business, you have to balance the need for proximity to the market, with the cost of land, labor costs, security, and a good water supply. When you are planning to construct a quail house, you have to select a site which is well-drained with plenty of natural air movement. The right housing should have proper ventilation and the right lighting. Ventilation is necessary so that adequate air exchange can take place. Lighting stimulates quail birds to lay eggs. If you want to produce eggs year-round, you will need to install adequate lighting in your facility.  You should have equipment including brooders(for the quail chicks) , feeders, drinkers and lighting system.  You will also need Quail cages, which is where you will keep the mature quail birds and the layers . If you purchase layer cages as housing for your quail layers, the layer cages will already have the laying nests, feeders, drinkers etc. The costs of housing and equipment should be included in your quail farming business plan.

Quail farming business plan

Sex Consideration In Quail Housing

The sex of the quail plays a huge role in how you house them. If you intend on breeding quail, you must keep the quail following a ratio of 1 male: 3 females. If you want to keep quail mixed then the ratio should be 1 male: 4 females. As for monosex quail farming, for males it should be in twos. For females you can keep them many without any issue, however reasonable spacing is vital.

Type Of Quail Housing To Consider

There are two common and easy options to pick from for housing your quail. These are cages and hutches; you can make them (do it yourself – DIY). Alternatively, you can purchase readymade ones. There is a third option which we can term forage-oriented quail housing . This can exclusively be a housing structure that encloses the quail but leaving them room to forage. The other method is that you can tweak a cage or hutch into a forage-oriented setup.

Spacing Considerations

Quail housing is usually done in the form of cages. You can always use your discretion in the space you allow per quail. Regardless, the recommended minimum space per quail should be 20 square feet. The height can be anything from 1 foot going up. Such spacing will allow the quail to have free horizontal and vertical movement. This is also a good place to mention about ventilation and natural light. These two conditions must be abundantly available for optimum quail growth. That is why the use of mesh is ideal.

Day old Quail Chicks

You need day old chicks to start your quail farming business.  After getting experience, you may then hatch your own quail chicks, which will greatly reduce your expenses as you will no longer need to buy day old quail chicks. You should purchase your day old quail chicks from a reliable accredited hatchery or company where the parent stocks are well managed. If you are new to the quail farming business, you should enquire from other farmers to hear where they buy their chicks from. The success of your quail farming business will partly depend on the quality of day old chicks which you buy.

Quail Breeds

There are well over 130 different types of quail species. Quail fall under two broad categories or families. These are the Phasianidae family and the Odontophoridae family. The former is what is referred to as Old World quail. The latter is the New World quail. Some of the notable Phasianidae family quail are Harlequin, Rain, and Common. Bobwhite, Mountain, and California are some of the notable Odontophoridae family quail. Your choice of quail species should not just be based on the family. You must consider the specific characteristics of a quail species.

Remember that quail are primarily reared for meat and eggs. Thus ideally you would want quail species with exceptional qualities regarding that. For meat and egg production from quail, the Coturnix species is the best also known as Japanese Quail, Pharoah Quail and Jumbo Coturnix Quail. The Japanese quail matures faster than other quail breeds. At maturity, it weighs between 120grams – 160grams. Other highly recommended quail species are Blue-breasted , Button Quail , Bobwhite , Chinese Quail , Gambel’s , Mearn’s , Mountain , Scaled , California , Manipur Bush , Jungle Bush, English White, and British Range . In general, despite even being a meat or egg species, most quail can be used for pet, bird gaming, and ornamental purposes.

Feeding is important so as to increase the production of meat and eggs from quails. Lack of feed or water will reduce resistance to diseases and parasites, and subsequently increase flock mortality. You have to feed the quail chicks with Starter mash. When they are mature, you can then give them finisher feed or layers mash, depending on whether you are raising the quails for eggs production or for meat. There are companies which produce and sell quail feeds. You can also feed quail birds with the same feed used for chickens. You can also make your own home made quail feeds. Quails should be provided with sufficient water. Quails need water for temperature regulation, waste removal, digestion of nutrients, and lubrication of joints. Water deprivation can cause weight loss, dehydration and, ultimately, death.

Management and Labour

The number of farm workers you need will depend on the size of your quail farming project. If you are running a small business, you and your family may be enough to take care of the quails. However, if you are rearing 5000 quail birds per cycle, you will need full time employees to manage the quails.  There is need for good technical knowledge of quail farming techniques for success in the business. You also need good management skills.

The amount of capital required for a quail farming business depends on the scale of the project. Sources of capital include bank loans, and equity investors. When raising capital, a good quail farming business plan is required. Don’t have access to capital? Start small, and grow your business overtime! Quail farming is very profitable, so if you reinvest the profits you get, you can quickly grow.

Benefits Of Quails And Eggs

Quail eggs have a significantly higher nutritional value. Eggs from chickens are far eclipsed by quail eggs when it comes to vitamin, iron, and protein content. That is why quail eggs are given high regard with respect healthy foods. Quail also have numerous health benefits e.g. preventing or treating certain conditions. Quail eggs overall have several benefits to the human body’s immune system. Couple all that with how scarce they typically are and you realize they have high market value. The same goes for meat; quail meat is highly nutritious. Quail meat is particularly laden with zinc, iron, and calcium.

Market for Quail Eggs And Meat

The market for quail meat is high and increasing, as more people are moving towards healthier food.  Quail meat is highly nutritious, delicious, and healthier. Thus, the demand for quail meat continues to rise. Quail meat is more expensive than broiler chicken meat, as quail meat is  considered to be more superior.

quail farming business plan

The quail eggs are also considered to be superior to chicken eggs. Quail eggs are considered to be highly nutritious, delicious, organic, and healthier. They are also considered to have numerous health benefits. Thus, the price of quail eggs is higher than other poultry eggs. You can supply your quail meat and eggs to individual households, butchers, schools, restaurants, companies, supermarkets, organizations, events, abattoirs etc. You can sell your quails as live birds or you can slaughter and freeze them and sell them as dressed quail meat.  As you grow your business, you will also be able to export your quail farming products. A proper marketing plan should be included in your quail farming business plan.

Keys To Profitability

Establish the presence of and the right target market.

Correct choice of a niche is foundational in making quail farming profitable. You must, borne out of market research, correctly establish the right target market. That way you will be able to then choose quail species that cater for that market. Remember that quail farming is not that widespread so do not do guesswork. The market for quail is extremely sparse.

Sell Benefits

Some people might not be familiar with quails. Yet there are huge benefits to be enjoyed from quail meat and eggs. This calls on you to make your promotional activities highly informational. After all, you should be striving to capture people who have never heard about quail before. The aim should be to sell the benefits e.g. superior nutritional value and other health benefits. This will be pivotal in generating leads and resulting in conversions. The bottom line is that quail farming is quite easy and low-cost. It is also apparent that quail meat and eggs have important nutritional benefits. Those two aspects indicate a lucrative business. However, you need to do some diligent work in generating leads.

Research The Quail Farming Industry And Market Trends

Before starting a quail farming business, it is essential to research the industry and understand the prevailing market trends. This research will provide critical insights into the demand for quail products and the current state of the market.

Begin by gathering information on the quail farming industry, including its size, growth rate, and key players. Explore trade publications, industry reports, and online resources to gain a comprehensive understanding of the industry's dynamics.

Furthermore, it is crucial to identify market trends that can influence the success of a quail farming business. Look for consumer preferences and changing demands related to quail meat and eggs. As consumers become more conscious of their food choices, factors like organic, free-range, and ethically-raised products may be of importance in the market.

Utilize credible sources to gather data on consumer behavior, such as market research reports, surveys, and online analytics. This information will help in understanding target customers and their preferences.

  • Quail farming industry size and growth rate
  • Market trends and consumer preferences
  • Competitor analysis
  • Opportunities and challenges in the industry

Identify And Evaluate Potential Target Customers

Identifying and evaluating potential target customers is a crucial step in developing a successful business plan for quail farming. By understanding the needs, preferences, and purchasing behavior of your target customers, you can tailor your products and marketing strategies to effectively reach and engage them.

To begin, conduct thorough market research to identify the demographics, psychographics, and buying habits of individuals or businesses who are likely to be interested in purchasing quail products. This research will help you create buyer personas, which are fictional representations of your ideal customers.

Consider the following factors when evaluating potential target customers:

  • Demand and interest: Determine the level of demand for quail products in your target market. Look for indications of consumer interest through online forums, social media discussions, and customer surveys. This will give you insights into the potential size of your customer base.
  • Preferences and behaviors: Understand the specific preferences and behaviors of your target customers when it comes to quail products. Are they looking for organic, free-range, or ethically sourced meat and eggs? Do they prioritize health benefits or sustainability? Knowing these details will help you position your products effectively.
  • Competition: Analyze the competition in your market. Identify other farms or businesses that are already supplying quail products and assess their offerings, pricing strategies, and distribution channels. This will give you a competitive edge by allowing you to differentiate your products and marketing approach.

Tips for Identifying and Evaluating Potential Target Customers:

  • Engage in market research techniques, such as surveys and interviews, to gain more in-depth insights into customer preferences and demands.
  • Utilize online tools and platforms, such as social media listening tools and Google Analytics, to monitor and gather data on customer behavior and interests.
  • Regularly update your buyer personas as market trends and customer preferences evolve.
  • Consider segmenting your target market into specific niches, such as health-conscious consumers or culinary enthusiasts, to tailor your marketing messages and offerings accordingly.
  • Tap into local food communities or organizations to connect with potential customers and gain valuable feedback on your products.

By thoroughly identifying and evaluating potential target customers, you will be better equipped to shape your quail farming business to meet their needs and effectively communicate the unique value proposition of your products.

Start by researching existing quail farms in your target market. Look for farms that are similar in size, production capacity, and business model. Visit their websites, study their product offerings, and analyze their pricing strategies. This will give you a sense of the competitive pricing range and help you position your products accordingly.

Take note of the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors. Identify what sets them apart and how they communicate their unique selling points.

How to write a business plan for a quails farm?

quails farm business plan

Writing a business plan for a quails farm can be an intimidating task, especially for those just starting.

This in-depth guide is designed to help entrepreneurs like you understand how to create a comprehensive business plan so that you can approach the exercise with method and confidence.

We'll cover: why writing a quails farm business plan is so important - both when starting up, and when running and growing the business - what information you need to include in your plan, how it should be structured, and what tools you can use to get the job done efficiently.

Let's get started!

In this guide:

Why write a business plan for a quails farm?

  • What information is needed to create a business plan for a quails farm?
  • What goes in the financial forecast for a quails farm?
  • What goes in the written part of a quails farm business plan?
  • What tool can I use to write my quails farm business plan?

Having a clear understanding of why you want to write a business plan for your quails farm will make it simpler for you to grasp the rationale behind its structure and content. So before delving into the plan's actual details, let's take a moment to remind ourselves of the primary reasons why you'd want to create a quails farm business plan.

To have a clear roadmap to grow the business

Small businesses rarely experience a constant and predictable environment. Economic cycles go up and down, while the business landscape is mutating constantly with new regulations, technologies, competitors, and consumer behaviours emerging when we least expect it.

In this dynamic context, it's essential to have a clear roadmap for your quails farm. Otherwise, you are navigating in the dark which is dangerous given that - as a business owner - your capital is at risk.

That's why crafting a well-thought-out business plan is crucial to ensure the long-term success and sustainability of your venture.

To create an effective business plan, you'll need to take a step-by-step approach. First, you'll have to assess your current position (if you're already in business), and then identify where you'd like your quails farm to be in the next three to five years.

Once you have a clear destination for your quails farm, you'll focus on three key areas:

  • Resources: you'll determine the human, equipment, and capital resources needed to reach your goals successfully.
  • Speed: you'll establish the optimal pace at which your business needs to grow if it is to meet its objectives within the desired timeframe.
  • Risks: you'll identify and address potential risks you might encounter along the way.

By going through this process regularly, you'll be able to make informed decisions about resource allocation, paving the way for the long-term success of your business.

To maintain visibility on future cash flows

Businesses can go for years without making a profit, but they go bust as soon as they run out of cash. That's why "cash is king", and maintaining visibility on your quails farm's future cash flows is critical.

How do I do that? That's simple: you need an up-to-date financial forecast.

The good news is that your quails farm business plan already contains a financial forecast (more on that later in this guide), so all you have to do is to keep it up-to-date.

To do this, you need to regularly compare the actual financial performance of your business to what was planned in your financial forecast, and adjust the forecast based on the current trajectory of your business.

Monitoring your quails farm's financial health will enable you to identify potential financial problems (such as an unexpected cash shortfall) early and to put in place corrective measures. It will also allow you to detect and capitalize on potential growth opportunities (higher demand from a given segment of customers for example).

To secure financing

Crafting a comprehensive business plan for your quails farm, whether you're starting up or already established, is paramount when you're seeking financing from banks or investors.

Given how fragile small businesses are, financiers will want to ensure that you have a clear roadmap in place as well as command and control of your future cash flows before entertaining the idea of funding you.

For banks, the information in your business plan will be used to assess your borrowing capacity - which is defined as the maximum amount of debt your business can afford alongside your ability to repay the loan. This evaluation helps them decide whether to extend credit to your business and under what terms (interest rate, duration, repayment options, collateral, etc.).

Similarly, investors will thoroughly review your plan to determine if their investment can yield an attractive return. They'll be looking for evidence that your quails farm has the potential for healthy growth, profitability, and consistent cash flow generation over time.

Now that you understand the importance of creating a business plan for your quails farm, let's delve into the necessary information needed to craft an effective plan.

Information needed to create a business plan for a quails farm

You need the right data in order to project sales, investments and costs accurately in the financial forecast of your quails farm business plan.

Below, we'll cover three key pieces of information you should gather before drafting your business plan.

Carrying out market research for a quails farm

Carrying out market research before writing a business plan for a quails farm is essential to ensure that the financial projections are accurate and realistic.

Market research helps you gain insight into your target customer base, competitors, pricing strategies and other key factors which can have an impact on the commercial success of your business.

In particular, it is useful in forecasting revenue as it provides valuable data regarding potential customers’ spending habits and preferences.

You could find out that people may be interested in purchasing quail eggs for their health benefits, such as increased protein intake. Additionally, research might indicate that there may be a growing demand for quail meat, as people become more aware of the potential health benefits associated with it.

This information can then be used to create more accurate financial projections which will help investors make informed decisions about investing in your quails farm.

Developing the sales and marketing plan for a quails farm

Budgeting sales and marketing expenses is essential before creating a quails farm business plan.

A comprehensive sales and marketing plan should provide an accurate projection of what actions need to be implemented to acquire and retain customers, how many people are needed to carry out these initiatives, and how much needs to be spent on promotions, advertising, and other aspects.

This helps ensure that the right amount of resources is allocated to these activities in order to hit the sales and growth objectives forecasted in your business plan.

The staffing and equipment needs of a quails farm

Whether you are at the beginning stages of your quails farm or expanding its horizons, having a clear plan for recruitment and capital expenditures (investment in equipment and real estate) is vital to ensure your business's success.

To achieve this, both the recruitment and investment plans must align coherently with the projected timing and level of growth in your forecast. It is essential to secure appropriate funding for these plans.

The staffing costs for a quail farm might include wages for workers to look after the birds as well as a manager or supervisor to oversee the farm. The equipment costs could include cages for the quails, feeders, incubators, and heating equipment. Additionally, the farm may require certain tools and materials to maintain the facility, such as cleaning supplies, nets, and gloves.

To create a financial forecast that accurately represents your business's outlook, remember to factor in other day-to-day operating expenses.

Now that you have all the necessary information, it's time to dive in and start creating your business plan and developing the financial forecast for your quails farm.

What goes into your quails farm's financial forecast?

The financial forecast of your quails farm will enable you to assess the profitability potential of your business in the coming years and how much capital is required to fund the actions planned in the business plan.

The four key outputs of a financial forecast for a quails farm are:

  • The profit and loss (P&L) statement ,
  • The projected balance sheet ,
  • The cash flow forecast ,
  • And the sources and uses table .

Let's take a closer look at each of these.

The projected P&L statement

The projected P&L statement for a quails farm shows how much revenue and profit your business is expected to make in the future.

example of projected profit and loss statement in a quails farm business plan

A healthy quails farm's P&L statement should show:

  • Sales growing at (minimum) or above (better) inflation
  • Stable (minimum) or expanding (better) profit margins
  • A healthy level of net profitability

This will of course depend on the stage of your business: numbers for a startup will look different than for an established quails farm.

The projected balance sheet of your quails farm

The balance sheet for a quails farm is a financial document that provides a snapshot of your business’s financial health at a given point in time.

It shows three main components: assets, liabilities and equity:

  • Assets: are resources owned by the business, such as cash, equipment, and accounts receivable (money owed by clients).
  • Liabilities: are debts owed to creditors and other entities, such as accounts payable (money owed to suppliers) and loans.
  • Equity: includes the sums invested by the shareholders or business owners and the cumulative profits and losses of the business to date (called retained earnings). It is a proxy for the value of the owner's stake in the business.

example of projected balance sheet in a quails farm business plan

Examining the balance sheet is important for lenders, investors, or other stakeholders who are interested in assessing your quails farm's liquidity and solvency:

  • Liquidity: assesses whether or not your business has sufficient cash and short-term assets to honour its liabilities due over the next 12 months. It is a short-term focus.
  • Solvency: assesses whether or not your business has the capacity to repay its debt over the medium-term.

Looking at the balance sheet can also provide insights into your quails farm's investment and financing policies.

In particular, stakeholders can compare the value of equity to the value of the outstanding financial debt to assess how the business is funded and what level of financial risk has been taken by the owners (financial debt is riskier because it has to be repaid, while equity doesn't need to be repaid).

The cash flow forecast

As we've seen earlier in this guide, monitoring future cash flows is the key to success and the only way of ensuring that your quails farm has enough cash to operate.

As you can expect showing future cash flows is the main role of the cash flow forecast in your quails farm business plan.

example of projected cash flow forecast in a quails farm business plan

It is best practice to organise the cash flow statement by nature in order to show the cash impact of the following areas:

  • Cash flow generated from operations: the operating cash flow shows how much cash is generated or consumed by the business's commercial activities
  • Cash flow from investing activities: the investing cash flow shows how much cash is being invested in capital expenditure (equipment, real estate, etc.) either to maintain the business's equipment or to expand its capabilities
  • Cash flow from financing activities: the financing cash flow shows how much cash is raised or distributed to financiers

Looking at the cash flow forecast helps you to make sure that your business has enough cash to keep running, and can help you anticipate potential cash shortfalls.

Your quails farm business plan will normally include both yearly and monthly cash flow forecasts so that the readers can view the impact of seasonality on your business cash position and generation.

The initial financing plan

The initial financing plan, also known as a sources and uses table, is a valuable resource to have in your business plan when starting your quails farm as it reveals the origins of the money needed to establish the business (sources) and how it will be allocated (uses).

quails farm business plan: sources & uses example

Having this table helps show what costs are involved in setting up your quails farm, how risks are shared between founders, investors and lenders, and what the starting cash position will be. This cash position needs to be sufficient to sustain operations until the business reaches a break-even point.

Now that you have a clear understanding of what goes into the financial forecast of your quails farm business plan, let's shift our focus to the written part of the plan.

The written part of a quails farm business plan

The written part of a quails farm business plan plays a key role: it lays out the plan of action you intend to execute to seize the commercial opportunity you've identified on the market and provides the context needed for the reader to decide if they believe your plan to be achievable and your financial forecast to be realistic.

The written part of a quails farm business plan is composed of 7 main sections:

  • The executive summary
  • The presentation of the company
  • The products and services
  • The market analysis
  • The strategy
  • The operations
  • The financial plan

Let's go through the content of each section in more detail!

1. The executive summary

The executive summary, the first section of your quails farm's business plan, serves as an inviting snapshot of your entire plan, leaving readers eager to know more about your business.

To compose an effective executive summary, start with a concise introduction of your business, covering its name, concept, location, history, and unique aspects. Share insights about the services or products you intend to offer and your target customer base.

Subsequently, provide an overview of your quails farm's addressable market, highlighting current trends and potential growth opportunities.

Then, present a summary of critical financial figures, such as projected revenues, profits, and cash flows.

You should then include a summary of your key financial figures such as projected revenues, profits, and cash flows.

Lastly, address any funding needs in the "ask" section of your executive summary.

2. The presentation of the company

The second section in your quails farm's business plan should focus on the structure and ownership, location, and management team of the company.

The structure and ownership part provides an overview of the legal structure of the business, who the owners are and how much each has invested and owns. If you are seeking financing it is important that the reader gets a clear picture of which legal entity is receiving the funds, and who controls the business.

The location part should give an overview of the premises from which the company is operating, and why that location is of particular interest (catchment area, accessibility, amenities nearby, etc.).

When describing the location of your quails farm to a third party financier, you may want to emphasize the potential benefits of the area. You could point out the access to a major transportation hub, as well as the potential for increased visibility that may come with being in a densely populated area. Additionally, you might mention the potential for increased access to resources, both in terms of materials and labor, that could be gained through being in close proximity to a major city. Finally, you could highlight any incentive programs or tax credits that could be available to your business in this region.

Finally, you should introduce the management team. Explain each member's role, background, and experience.

It is also important to emphasize any past successes that the members of the management team have achieved, and how long they've been working together, as this will help potential lenders or investors understand why they should trust in their leadership.

3. The products and services section

The products and services section of your business plan should include a detailed description of what your company offers, who are the target customers, and what distribution channels are part of your go-to-market. 

For example, your quails farm could offer fresh, live quail eggs and meat to customers, as well as the opportunity for customers to purchase quail chicks to raise themselves. Additionally, quail feather products such as pillows and clothing could be offered, as well as quail-raising and care classes. These products and services could provide customers with access to healthy, high-quality quail products, as well as the knowledge and resources necessary to care for their own quail.

4. The market analysis

When you present your market analysis in your quails farm business plan, it's crucial to include detailed information about customers' demographics and segmentation, target market, competition, barriers to entry, and any relevant regulations.

The main objective of this section is to help the reader understand the size and attractiveness of the market while demonstrating your solid understanding of the industry.

Begin with the demographics and segmentation subsection, providing an overview of the addressable market for your quails farm, the key trends in the marketplace, and introducing different customer segments along with their preferences in terms of purchasing habits and budgets.

Next, focus on your target market, zooming in on the specific customer segments your quails farm aims to serve and explaining how your products and services fulfil their distinct needs.

For example, your target market might include health-conscious individuals who want to cook at home. These customers prioritize fresh, organic, and locally-sourced ingredients. They are willing to pay a premium for a product that fits their values and lifestyle.

Then proceed to the competition subsection, where you introduce your main competitors and highlight what sets you apart from them.

Finally, conclude your market analysis with an overview of the key regulations applicable to your quails farm.

5. The strategy section

When you write the strategy section of your quails farm business plan, remember to cover key elements such as your competitive edge, pricing strategy, sales & marketing plan, milestones, and risks and mitigants.

In the competitive edge subsection, elaborate on what makes your company stand out from competitors. This becomes especially important if you're a startup, aiming to carve a place for yourself amidst established players in the marketplace.

The pricing strategy subsection should demonstrate how you plan to maintain profitability while offering competitive prices to attract customers.

Outline your sales & marketing plan, detailing how you'll reach out to new customers and retain existing ones through loyalty programs or special offers.

For the milestones subsection, outline your company's achievements to date and your main objectives for the future, complete with specific dates to set clear expectations for progress.

Lastly, the risks and mitigants subsection should address the main risks that could affect your plan's execution. Explain the measures you've put in place to minimize these risks, assuring potential investors or lenders.

Your quail farm faces a variety of risks. For example, you may experience losses due to the spread of disease among the birds. Quails are susceptible to a variety of illnesses, so it is important to take preventative measures to reduce the risk of infection. Additionally, you could face financial loss due to theft or vandalism. Due to the size of a quail farm, it can be easier for criminals to access the property and take the birds or damage the facility. Taking steps to secure the premises and monitor the area can help to reduce the financial risks.

6. The operations section

The operations of your quails farm must be presented in detail in your business plan.

The first thing you should cover in this section is your staffing team, the main roles, and the overall recruitment plan to support the growth expected in your business plan. You should also outline the qualifications and experience necessary to fulfil each role, and how you intend to recruit (using job boards, referrals, or headhunters).

You should then state the operating hours of your quails farm - so that the reader can check the adequacy of your staffing levels - and any plans for varying opening times during peak season. Additionally, the plan should include details on how you will handle customer queries outside of normal operating hours.

The next part of this section should focus on the key assets and IP required to operate your business. If you depend on any licenses or trademarks, physical structures (equipment or property) or lease agreements, these should all go in there.

You may have key assets such as land, buildings and equipment for the farm. You could also have intellectual property such as the brand name, recipes, and processes used to breed and raise the quails. These assets and IP might help you to create a successful and profitable business.

Finally, you should include a list of suppliers that you plan to work with and a breakdown of their services and main commercial terms (price, payment terms, contract duration, etc.). Investors are always keen to know if there is a particular reason why you have chosen to work with a specific supplier (higher-quality products or past relationships for example).

7. The presentation of the financial plan

The financial plan section is where we will include the financial forecast we discussed earlier in this guide.

Now that you have a clear idea of what goes into a quails farm business plan, let's look at some of the tools you can use to create yours efficiently.

Business plan writers are experienced in writing business plans and adept at creating financial forecasts without errors. Furthermore, hiring a consultant can save you time and allow you to focus on the day-to-day operations of your business.

However, hiring business plan writers is expensive as you are paying for the software used by the consultant, plus their time, and their profit margin of course.

From experience, you need to budget at least £1.5k ($2.0k) excluding tax for a complete business plan, more if you need to make changes after the initial version (which happens frequently after the initial meetings with lenders or investors).

You also need to be careful when seeking investment. Investors want their money to be used to grow the business, not spent on consulting fees. Therefore, the amount you spend on business plan writing services (and other consulting services such as legal services) needs to be negligible relative to the amount raised.

The other drawback is that you usually don't own the business plan itself: you just get the output, while the actual document is saved in the consultant's business plan software - which makes it difficult to maintain the document up to date without hiring the consultant on a retainer.

For these reasons, outsourcing the quails farm business plan to a business plan writer should be considered carefully, weighing both the advantages and disadvantages of hiring outside help.

Ultimately, it may be the right decision for some businesses, while others may find it beneficial to write their business plan using online software.

Why not create your quails farm's business plan using Word or Excel?

Using Microsoft Excel and Word (or their Google, Apple, or open-source equivalents) to write a quails farm business plan is a terrible idea.

For starters, creating an accurate and error-free financial forecast on Excel (or any spreadsheet) is very technical and requires both a strong grasp of accounting principles and solid skills in financial modelling.

As a result, it is unlikely anyone will trust your numbers unless - like us at The Business Plan Shop - you hold a degree in finance and accounting and have significant financial modelling experience in your past.

The second reason is that it is inefficient. Building forecasts on spreadsheets was the only option in the 1990s and early 2000s, nowadays technology has advanced and software can do it much faster and much more accurately.

And with the rise of AI, software is also becoming smarter at helping us detect mistakes in our forecasts and helping us analyse the numbers to make better decisions.

Also, using software makes it easy to compare actuals vs. forecasts and maintain our forecasts up to date to maintain visibility on future cash flows - as we discussed earlier in this guide - whereas this is a pain to do with a spreadsheet.

That's for the forecast, but what about the written part of my quails farm business plan?

This part is less error-prone, but here also software brings tremendous gains in productivity:

  • Word processors don't include instructions and examples for each part of your business plan
  • Word processors don't update your numbers automatically when they change in your forecast
  • Word processors don't handle the formatting for you

Overall, while Word or Excel may be viable options for creating a quails farm business plan for some entrepreneurs, it is by far not the best or most efficient solution.

  • A business plan has 2 complementary parts: a financial forecast showcasing the expected growth, profits and cash flows of the business; and a written part which provides the context needed to judge if the forecast is realistic and relevant.
  • Having an up-to-date business plan is the only way to keep visibility on your quails farm's future cash flows.
  • Using business plan software is the modern way of writing and maintaining business plans.

We hope that this practical guide gave you insights on how to write the business plan for your quails farm. Do not hesitate to get in touch with our team if you still have questions.
