    Well Niki you finally got to us...... [​IMG]
    We finally got into Quail. Coturnix and Button....

    We had our first hatch of Button Quail and I'm wondering
    "ok Now... how much is a fair price to sell them for?"

    We also have some spare male Buttons that I might sell but I don't know what is a fair price.
    Those of you that have been at this a while what's your thoughts?

    Thanks,
    David

    I'm glad I helped ya get the bug....er I mean the quail...bug... [​IMG]
    I'm glad Citalk2much was here because my prices for button quail here in PA are dramatically lower. theres really not a damand for any quail here except the bobwhites which is so not fun since people who don't know of buttons would enjoy them justlike they do exotic caged finches, and coturnix meat and eggs where can you go wroonnng! [​IMG] So spread the word...i think one freak at a time (coturnix freak that is) we'll get the word out [​IMG] [​IMG]
