    I'm very new to the world of poultry (though I bred show finches for a few years in another lifetime) and I can't seem to find any comparisons between Coturnix vs. Bobwhite quail. Has anyone here ever kept both?

    If so, how do they compare in terms of care/upkeep, egg laying, housing requirements, and noise level?

    I've seen comparisons on this forum in terms of how they taste, but I don't eat meat so that's not very useful for me... :p

    Thank you!
