    Hello!

    I'm curious to what is around here. What do all you guys breed? I will make a tally, so we can then make a percentage!

    Me:
    Jumbo/Jap Quail (Coturnix japonica)
    King Quail (Coturnix chinesis)
    Stubble Quail (Coturnix pectoralis)
    Brown Quail (Coturnix ypsilophora)
    Bobwhite Quail (Colinus virginianus)



    That's what I breed!!!! :D

    I will edit this post as the lists get longer, and add a tally. I am sure Jumbo/Jap Quails will be the most frequent.

    In my Jumbos, I have Pharoah, Italian and Tuxedo.

    And, when you say 'button', do you mean King quail/Chinese Painted, or do you mean the Turnix ButtonQuails? [​IMG]
