I've always heard that allergies can be caused by what the animal eats. I've been tested and I'm allergic to the proteins in these products and I also react physically to these items. I've had quail eggs about 5 times now. I'm currently not allergic, but that doesn't mean I won't develop an allergy, time will tell. I'm am allergic to soy, and many other things that may be in feed so I may look for a soy-free feed.
Thank you for the link for chicks. I know the Gambels are here in the wild. You are correct Bobwhites might be easier to find here, but we need some type of license to raise them here.
