Quail Market in Kenya 2016

The Wild Birds Farming Association of Kenya is providing a much needed quail market in Kenya in 2016. Very many farmers ventured in this business a situation that resulted to over-flooding of the market with quail eggs and meat. This has lead to massive loses from over-exploitation by the middlemen to a point where some farmers have been forced to just throw in the towel and release the birds. This need not be the case, you can still find quail market in Kenya.

Quail farming fad hit the country as hard a heart attack. The marketing was really good and few farmers could resist having a chance to take a piece of the unimaginable profits. The promoters preached the many health benefits and a huge quail market in Kenya for the farmers.This lead to over investment in this venture and the weight was so huge that the foundation came crushing down.

Quail market in Kenya in 2016 however became so flooded with quail products that the prize for eggs came down from 60 Kenyan Shillings a piece to 10. A mature bird is currently trading for Ksh.50.

All is not lost though; the Association's treasurer, Mr. Samuel Muriithi maintains that quail farming can still be profitable and their aim is to do away with the exploitative middlemen by exploring quail market in Kenya both locally and internationally.

Although many experts agree that many claims made on the nutritional and medicinal benefits of quail eggs and meat are a little far fetched and for marketing purposes, Mr. Murrithi still insists that quail farming is anything but a pyramid scheme. The venture can still be profitable if more options for quail market in Kenya were explored.
