    So I just ordered bobbird eggs from stromberg for march and I was able to talk to the breeder who says that they hatch great and they also breed okay producing all sorts of sizes and whatnot in the f2. Just for clarification the bob-birds are a cross between a bobwhite species and coturnix species and is supposedly good for hunting. Also she is throwing in an assortment of pure coturnix because I told her I have only raised bobwhite's. Nice lady [​IMG] Anybody order them before? I'm getting the eggs in early april so I will be sure to post pics.

    In a search for coturnix quail I ran across a thread about "red butler" coturnix or something but on that thread someone says that it is impossible to cross bobwhites and coturnix. So how does Strombergs do it?

    Quote:don't bother with Strombergs they are terrible at customer satisfaction, relations, and service!!! Personally I think all they care about is the money in the pocket vrs how they supply it to the customer.

    I have order from Strombergs alot and never had any problems. Most of my incubators, poultry supplys and even my first heritage turkeys where from Strombergs. They had nice size too.

    Quote:You know I have ordered from them too but, this last one really did me in! I will never ever order from them again. I could go on and on but, I posted something up here Strombergs earlier if your interested in reading it to see what happened. Needless to say I had to throw out 3 dozen hatching eggs b/c of those idiots!!
