    Not many people have these breeds (or production enough to have an extra pair.)

    I would wait till spring, but I know you can find eggs on eBay. (But you will have to indenture your kids to get mountain quail... they are EXPENSIVE! [​IMG] )

    HOpe this helps! No one is replying because no one knows/has any. Nothing personal! [​IMG]

    Your best bet is to wait for spring for those type of quail. Maybe after breeding season is over breeders will have extras to sell then. You can try e-bay but as Whiteconfections has said they will probably be pretty expensive.

    For Valley Quail And Possibly Blue Scaled Pm Valleyquailbreeder
    For Mountain And Possible Gambels Spectrumranch

    Other Than That Like I Said Earlier Try Bidbird I Know I Have Seen All 3 Speces In Auctions There In The Past Week. Be Prepared To Pay For Shipping... Shipping On Live Birds Is Frieghteningly Expensive. A Pair Or Trio Of These Will Likely Cost $50+ For Shipping Alone Not Including The Purchase Price Of The Animals Themselves... If You Get Lucky And Get Multiple Speces From The Same Breeder You Can Save A Little On Shipping As Up To 3 Horizon Boxes Can Be Taped Togather And Mailed As 1 Single Package... Helps To Cut Costs Quite A Bit

    Also King Is Correct, They Are Specialty Speces And Not For The Beginning Aviculture Enthusiasts. Valleys Are Quite Frail... Have No Exposure With Blue Scaled Or Gambels??? And Mountains Are Serious Specialty... Very Expensive And Quite Frail. If You Wait Til Late Spring/ Early Summer Many Eggs Will Be Available... But Even Eggs For These Speces Are Expensive With No Guarentees Of Hatch Or Sex Ratio.... Did I Mention They Are Frail? That Goes Double Or Triple For Hatching. Best Way Is To Seek Adults And Statr From There... At Least You Know You Live Birds And Their Sexes Are Guarenteed. Its A Tad Late To Find Surplus Breeders For Sale But They Are Out There. For Future Reference Eggs From May Thru July, Breeders From September Thru About Now Is Usually The Availability On Almost All New World Quail Speces As Far As Timing Goes

    Since some or all of those are Native quail, you may also need permits. It depends on where you live. You have to be aware of the laws in your state.

    They may tell you how many you can have, what type, etc. You may have to have inspections or otherwise show compliance with laws. Check your state department of conservation, natural resources, fish and game, or whatever it is named where you live.
