    well i FINALLY got to a point in my quail raising that people are actually believeing me when i say "i have quails". Friend of mine is buying 7 of my wild color egg layers for $5 each, and selling 2 butchered to another person for $6 each

    they were both happy to pay the price lol

    thank god i got about 12 in the incubator running around, and another 11 in the garage about to go into the grow out pen

    That's cool Mibotsu!!

    I have a friend with a dog with special diet needs, and she wants to buy a few when we butcher them.

    Maybe next week. [​IMG]

    That is awesome. Have had mine since August. Wife and kids got me an incubator for Christmas. Hope to start hatching some soon to raise for meat or to sell. So far they have earned their keep by providing eggs for breakfast about once a month. We ate about a dozen this morning.
