  1. If I have a few, Can I breed Father with Daughter? Or is that to much interbreeding?
    Can I breed Son with Mother? Or is that to much interbreeding?
    Can I breed Sister with brother? (dumb question, But never hurts to ask)

    You can do it. every so many generations, bring in fresh blood, so long as it's compatiable with your breeding goals. After 2 years of working on size, I've now getting big-enouth roos consistently. So now I'm bringing on some colored quail for a second line, and seeing if I can get some size outcrossed there.
     
  3. Well, I will prob getting Some off of a friend, than Maybe getting some hatching eggs (Using my incubator for the first time). So When the chicks are adults the eggs would be hatched already and Getting feathered up. It's going to be a School thing and I want to try quail eggs and A bit of their meat.
     
  4. Is $15 plus shipping for 2 dozen a good deal?
