Diversification into production of livestock with short generation interval will be a viable tool in ameliorating shortage of protein among the populace in developing countries as reported by NVRI (1994).

Japanese quail is the smallest avian species farmed for meat and egg production (Panda and Singh 1990) and it has also assumed world-wide importance as a laboratory animal (Baumgarther 1990).
