    How do you guys typically go about adding size to your standard bobwhites? Do you simply only breed your biggest ones? Or would you bring in some Georgia Giants or Butlers. I'm starting with some Tenn. Reds and just looking for ideas if I want to get bigger birds (without necessarily just buying them).

    Just keep breeding up in size (breed the biggest males to the biggest females). It takes time...........lots of time!
