    "Great Quail to have"
    Pros - Beautiful bird, great call, not as aggressive as most quail, tame down well and aren't as flighty as some quail.
    Cons - A little harder too brood and will toe peck if not brooded correctly. Egg laying not as reliable.
    I have raised Mountains for some time now and are my favorite out of 8 different breeds I raise. Gorgeous bird with a beautiful call, easy to raise if brooded correctly.

    "Mountain quail"
    Pros - Beautiful birds, easily kept in captivity.
    Cons - More demanding during brooding. Tend to toe picking.
    Have raised Mountains for many years. Great birds to raise and breed. Not for the first time quail raiser but with some experience can be very rewarding.
