Advantages in raising quail free range instead of in cages are the following:
- Since there is more space available for the birds, they receive no bruises resulting in more compact and
- higher quality meat.
- The birds’ stress decreases.
- The mortality rate of the offspring decreases.
- Their wings do not break so easily.
Most of the slaughterhouses only accept meat from free range quails, on the basis of the animal welfare legislation established by the World Organisation for Animal Health.
