    I am an old head on raising Quail (Bobwhites and Coturnix)......I first started around 1969 when "Albert Marsh" who owned "Marsh Farms" Garden Grove,California!!... At that time, I think he was one of the first to import Coturnix Quail to my Knowledge. ..Even then they
    had the English Whites,Manchurian Golden, British Range and the "wild" type Coturnix.....I was of Course younger then and ordered a "Dukes Mixture" of all of them about 30 (day old Chicks) at the unheard price of $15....Now here I am 62 years old and want to start back fooling with them. I have 3 Bators older "Hova Bators" but one of them is the latest one with the electronic Thermostat 1588... I just ordered 150 Texas A&M's, and 50 Jumbo Browns.....Does it ever get out of your blood? Getting excited like a kid ,waiting for the Eggs!!

    Thanks for Listening to me Ramblings!
