    $1 an egg for california quail is a pretty good price. And so is $.50 an egg for ringnecks. At least around here.

    Quote:Not sure, but I will check before hatching. I'm thinking the post would have been flagged if that was the case with the overzealous flaggers on craigslist [​IMG]

    Its not illegal to own CVQ in California, as long as you can prove they came from a federally licensed breeder, in otherwords a 3-186 form. You also will need a domestic game breeders license for CA, you can obtain that from the CA DFG.

    As far as $1 per egg, that sounds about the average.

    You can also pick-up day olds from a breeder in Alamo for $2 a piece.

    Quote:One more thing Nancy, there is a breeder in Paradise that has CVQ, look up "pheasants in paradise" on the web and contact him.
