    We are starting to raise quail to sell their eggs and chicks for a little extra income and an a fun hobby. I am looking at our states regulations but really not finding information regarding selling live quail. Is there a specific permit to sell chicks and adult quail? We are getting the $5.00 permit to sell the eggs. Should I just contact the department of agriculture? Thank you!!!

    :welcome I'm in MO as well. I don't have an answer for you. I didn't even know that the state required a permit to sell eggs!:confused:
    I just wanted to welcome you. What part of MO are you in? There's a MO thread. You may try posting this question there too.

    I am in Kansas City :) From what I was reading MO requires a permit if you are selling at farmers markets or some place other than your home and you have to grade the eggs :). You don't need a permit if you are just selling from your house. I will definitely go and check that out. Thank you!

    I'm from mo. I Sell at auctions and swaps. Unless it's a gamebird bobwhite or ringneck or other regulated bird by the dept. Of conservation. To sell these you need a class 1 breeder permit.

    There is no permit necessary for cotournix quail unless it is going to cross state lines.

    Cotournix quail are not regulated in the state for eggs and chicks. But selling meat may fall under different standards.
