    About bobwhites

    So, at the beginning of May I should be receiving baby bobwhites. My question is can they be tamed down? I know they are some of the wilder breeds of quail. Also, how would I tame them? Do we just handle them frequently? I know all about coturnix, but we unfortunately couldn't order those. :idunno

    Gooseberry the bobwhite quail

    Hey friends, just though I'd show you some pictures of my "chosen quail" because he is such a king. Gooseberry is a Georgia Giant Bobwhite quail (though I accidentally said Jumbo Wisconsin in my intro...whoops) and he is pretty dominant. Y'all can share your pictures if you'd like to.
