    I Looked At Wadly Farms But Those Eggs Are So Expensive. Im Looking For Someone To Sell Me Around 100 Eggs. Im In The Nw Section Of Florida Panhandle. I Will Be Glad To Pay For Them To Be Shipped. If Someone Could Help Me Out That Would Be Great! I Have Some Courtunix, And Texas A&ms But They Arent Very Big. So I Decided To Go With The Georgia Giant Bobs. [​IMG]

    Sorry, I was thinking JJ had those, but he's got butler's. But that's an option if you don't find the GG, he's in Brooksville I believe.

    Quote:Not trying to influence you one way or the other, but I've gotten 300+ GG eggs from Wadley to have a good stock base come springtime next year. I had "2" cracked eggs out of 300+. Hatch rate was off-the-chart remarkable, considering I used a Little Giant bator. Death rate amongst chicks was hardly noticable. And they're as plump and healthy as you could want from a Bobwhite(excluding many which have gone to the freezer) .......................... My point: In this case, you get what you pay for.

    There are some on ebay that are ending in 5 minutes. They are 45.00 for a hundred. That is with shipping.

    THANKS FOR ALL YOUR INFO! im looking to get some good sized birds that i can sell to the community as meat but also to some of the hunt clubs around here. i figured the georgia giants were a good choice. and they are hard to come by around here. i know the butlers are bigger but is that something to consider? will hunt clubs buy those? or do people just sell for butcher? just trying to get an overall bird to try to make some money and put in the freezer. right now i have the cortunix but they are too small. i used to raise wisconsin jumbos, but im trying to do something alittle different than everyone else in my town. anyway if you have suggestions please dont be shy. thanks:)

    Are you looking for an egg source, that you can buy eggs from, hatch, and grow out, etc., or are you looking for good breeding stock, that you will be maintaining for your own production of eggs for hatching?

    It may seam like a silly question, but if you want to go big, you will most likely have to maintain your own breeding stock. If you want an egg supplier, that can ship year around, then you may have to settle for a smaller size bird.

    What ever the ending. Knowing the production model would help me, and others advise a source.
