Raising Quail

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am starting out with looking into raising quail (probably the Texas A&M whites and some Jumbo Coturnix). I have noticed that I can buy eggs from several different breeders, but my question is, if I buy from one breeder (say 2 doz eggs of each breed) how do I tell if the breeders I keep are related, or does it make a difference?  That is unless I buy froom different breeders.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi! :frow Welcome! I'm not a breed expert but to help with your question, as I once had the same concern, the bigger the breeder, the less likelihood of the breeds being related, but inbreeding and direct line breeding is very common with chickens. Here'a a link to a breeding forum you might find very useful! Feel free to start a thread and post questions!

Best of luck to you!

I would think quail are like chickens, and you aren't likely to find   a problem.  You may want to ask your questions on the  "Quail thread."  Just put that in the search box and it should pop up.   Welcome to Backyard chickens.

Sorry.  I don't really know anything about quail.  I just wanted to pop in and say, "Welcome to the BYC flock!  We are glad you joined us!"
