I want to breed and raise quails for meat. I am new at raising any animals besides hamsters. I have heard alot about both Coturnix and Bobwhite quail but I don't know which is better. Any suggestions for this beginner?

Coturnix Are The Production Birds Of Teh Gamebird World... Roaches Of The Quail World, And Most Docile And Easily Handled. Bobs Are Slow, Do Not Produce Anywhere Near The Amount Of Eggs Coturnix Do And Are Extremely Agressive And Spastic Easily Requiring 10x's More Output In Time, Money, And Effort, However Most Folks Tend To Think Bobs Are More Tasty

Bobs are insane.. I keep telling myself that I don't NEED any bobs... but part of my brain is just sick enough to want me to try raising them anyway...

So far I haven't given in.... but i know its only a matter of time.....

they're insane.. pure and simple.. kind of a Jekyll and Hyde type of critter.. at least that's what Ive gathered from everyone here....
but even so... i know I don't NEED any Bobs.... (i know.. keep repeating that over and over until I convince myself)... but still.. part of my brain is just sick and twisted enough...

*backs away from the bob eggs .. douses them with holy water... and hides under a rock*

The Jekyll part would be really nice now and then there is a more gradual learning curve to the corts the bobs you really have to pay attention hard to stay on top of them ,blue scales are twice as spazy as bobs though , gambels are sweet little birds though
