    I have been doing some research and am only on my first hatch but i dont want to keep going back to the same breeder over and over. Can you all recommend some reputable Bobwhite breeders? Thank you in advance!
    And are these guys any good?

    You can check the sticky at the top of the quail section, in the archives. The breeders directory. Lots of folks ship eggs. Don't be afraid to breed your own stock together. You can breed them for quite sometime before any issues develop. I have found that by breeding my own birds, I can control their aggression, size and over all health. Since Bobs tend to be a bit on the hyper side, I breed the calmest, friendliest male with the same type female and each generation gets calmer and friendlier.

    Good luck with your Bobs!
