    Hello I am trying to decide on the breed of quail I want to get, I am so indecisive and keep changing my mind. Anyways, a few quick questions about bobwhites:

    1) I read on the sticky that the coturnix don't need branches for nesting but other breeds do, is bobwhite one of those breeds that does?

    2) Are they dual purpose or do they focus on a specific area such as egg production or meat.

    3) Jumbo vs regular, is it worth it to get jumbo? any real difference other than the size?

    Thank you.
