    I've been planning to acquire a pair of button quail and I have a set up for housing all ready to go, but I've been having difficulty finding a pair of quail.

    I'm located in Central Florida and would prefer to pick up the quails in person. Does anybody know of someplace in FL where I can get a pair of quail, or alternatively have a pair they'd be willing to sell?

    Welcome to BYC!

    I've never raised any poultry other than chickens but have seen quail for sale at the Barberville swap meet (not sure what breed they were). I think there's a meet around the 1st and 15th of every month. You might be able to find out when the next one is by doing a Google search for Barberville, FL. You could also ask other members on the FL thread if they know anyone locally that has quail for sale:

    Good luck to you!
