I've finally got me some Mountain Quail eggs!! Anyone else raise them? - Page 5
As an fyi, adult birds are normally $100 per pair and eggs are $10 each. If that's the price range at which you can afford, then ok. Try looking for eggs as they are normally sold this time of year (adults are rarely sold at this time of year). In the fall and winter is when breeders will have adult pairs for sale.
you can not believe how happy i was when i found the period you had put between eat and you.
the first time i read your reply as----------------------------- there is a trick in getting them to eat you !
i am going to invest in a new pair of reading glasses real soon most definitely now..
yet i do have to admit its much more dangerous and daring reading all the posts with out them ..
After weeks and weeks of losing auctions and hours of searching for Mountain quail eggs, I finally found a breeder with reasonable prices and got myself a dozen eggs to hatch. Recently, I've seen auctions on ebay and eggbid selling eggs for as low as $8 an egg, all the way up to $20 an egg, and I was lucky enough to get them for $5 each. So hopefully Ill have a good hatch and on the way to having my own flock. Does anyone else out there raise Mountain quail? Any pictures or experiences/tips with them would be appreciated. Thanks
Check out eBay if you don't mind taking the risk. I've found some Mountain quail hatching eggs on there - also found California Valley and Gambel's quail.
I got my Bobwhite eggs from an eBay seller and had a great hatch!
