    The eggs I had shipped to AK did not develope BUT her birds look healthy. As I told a kid who asked me to come down to meet a competitors price today. You get what you pay for. My competitors birds are kept in battery cages and have been pecked bald. I charge more as mine cost more to keep as they are kept properly.

    I never though about it that way, I dont like it when people do it that way but there is a good side and a bad side to it.....If you buy from them youre saving those chicks from that fate and also if you buy from them that keeps them in business............

    Hey!

    Battery cages are really good for keeping quail in, but not if you cramp.

    These were cramped as were the babies. The smell was horrible. And bobwhites were in with them. Tearing each other to peices.
