According to veterinary and health experts, quail eggs can be used to treat various ailments such as asthma, cough and allergies.
Quail eggs have proven beneficial in treating more than 30 diseases. They have no cholesterol and have a high concentration of vitamins and minerals.
The eggs rejuvenate the body, improve intelligence quotient, combat stress, diabetes, obesity as well as liver and kidney diseases.
The explain that many people are allergic to chicken and eggs, which cause some itching, nausea and even vomiting — that is not the case with quail eggs. They are not only free of allergies, but they also help to fight allergies because of a special protein called ovomucoid they contain.
Dominic Namuyimba of Wakiso, who has kept quails for years, says they grow fast and are ready for slaughter after six weeks.
Namuyimba says they are also good pets.
“Quails are smart birds and can respond to their names, eat from your hands and can even be trained to do certain things,” he says.
