I'm mulling around in my mind about raising quail for fun and profit. I have been doing some research and came across this site, which has already been of some aid. I called up a game resort that is just a few miles up the road from where I live to inquire about whether or not they purchase their quail, and if so what kind of quail, how many, and how much they pay. The owner assured me he does buy the birds from breeders and pays $3.50 per bird. I realize I am new to this, but from my research I've done thus far it appears to me the cost of raising Bob Whites would be considerably more than that. Am I looking in the wrong places for prices or is the guy pulling my chain at what he pays per bird? Also, are Bob Whites raised to 20 weeks before they are sold to hunting clubs? Perhaps I need to reconsider whether I want to sell to individuals or to hunting resorts. If I sell to individuals would Pharoah quails be a better choice?
