    Hey is there any good quail breeders on eBay? I want to trust some of those breeders, but i'm scared of receiving old eggs / different breeds / tiny pool genes. I do not want to buy off other websites. The reason being,- its that - those folks on eBay probably have some type of reputation, and if something goes wrong, eBay should be good on that (I hope).

    I have received eggs twice from Bfrancis and I HIGHLY recommend him for eggs, I know other members would recommend him as well. 90+% hatch rate is AMAZING on shipped eggs, his quail eggs and chicken eggs were both 90+% hatches, best shipped eggs I have ever received.

    The evidence is in the birds, here are some pics of mine I hatched recently from his eggs

    I try to use someone close to me so as to lessen the chances of rough handling of the eggs. Bfrancis has a great reputation and, as being out west goes, is close enough,...HaHa
    That's where I would start...

    Yeah Bfrancis or Jamesmarie is a good choice, I am not sure if Jamesmarie has eggs on ebay but does have a website, I know Bfrancis does the eBay stuff.

    If you get a good seller with a quality reputation for good fertility and shipping practices you cant go wrong. I have received eggs from a few different vendors and have had good luck and bad luck so since I found a good seller I dont really need to look around unless its a color Bfrancis doesnt have, heck if I find a color he doesnt have I am going to hook him up with eggs anyway lol a man can never have too many quail lol

    I had great sucess with Chickbird here on BYC with my quail. I had 80-90% hatch rate and the quail taste wonderful. I bought chicken hatching eggs from a person off of ebay and they sell quail eggs also, that I would not buy from b/c my chciks were NOT what they said. They were GLW but they had muffs! They were culled. That seller goes by Razzledazzle.
