Average weight for a standard Japanese quail hen is anywhere between 7 - 9 oz

Average weight for a Jumbo/Giant Japanese quail hen is allegedly 14 - 16 oz

11 - 12 oz seems to the norm for a Jumbo Jap hen unless reared and fed a high protein diet (basing my opinion on my own experiences & what other forumers with jumbos say)

I've just re-weighed my crosses, they've not been weighed since 8 weeks. Heaviest is 324g - beating the jumbo parents!! Lightest is 268g, so I was right with that end of the scale. 300g seems average.

Wonder if they're slower growing, or if they're just putting on more weight with the higher protein quail pellets.
