    LOL i guarrentee ya you need a permit for bobwhites [​IMG] they are native to the US. However in SOME states you only need a permit if you're going to sell them or release them for shooting. Otherwise in some states you can raise them without a permit for your own use.

    Yep... I'd go for coturnix over BWs for "pets". [​IMG] Mine come running up, let me pick them up and snuzzle them... almost as tame as the chickens. [​IMG]
