    I had thinking for a while about getting some quail. I was figuring maybe 8 adults to start and see if I liked them or not. Well, as usual, I went overboard (anyone else have this problem?) and purchased 28 Coturnix quail. I picked up 14 browns, 7 whites, 4 golden's, and 3 tuxedos. As usual, I brought them home and then got a place ready for them. I love the sound they make. Its like summer tree frogs. I'm already hooked and would love to to purchase some eggs from the white jumbos.

    Yeah, you went overboard too.

    A few months ago I decided to get a few bobwhites. Ended up with six. Then I went and got 8 A&M Coturnix and a Mex. Speckled Bob., Then 9 button quail, and now i have 17 button eggs ready for the bator, and 15 or so Coturnix eggs in the bator.... [​IMG]
