    I was just wondering because when I call NY DEC, I told them to send me the license to breed and sell instead of the one for person consumption. The license is 50 vs 10 dollars. Just trying to decide it it worth the extra forty dollar.

    At least here in Virginia you don't need a permit to own Coturnix Quail...
    Bob Whites you do as they are Native...
    Are you raising Bob White Quail?

    If you don't mind me asking, what do you charge?
    Not much of a market here YET for these products, but I would like to figure out a reasonable starting point and then I can adjust for my area.​

    In NY state it does matter, if you raise quail, pheasant,chukar,partridge you need a license

    In Va you also need a license for pheasant, chukar & partridge but not Coturnix. Coturnix Quail originate from Japan so they are not Native to Va.
    The laws in other states will vary of course so it's best to check your local Game and Inland Fisheries Dept.

    When I look on the DEC website, It didn't seem to exclude any specific type.
    Here the link http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/25010.html
