    We have raised several different coturnix quail and thinking of trying bobwhites. We eat a lot of the eggs and want to know if the bobwhite's eggs compare. Are they as big? Do they taste as good? Thanks in advance!

    Bobwhite eggs are much smaller. It would take quite a few for a meal so I never really bothered to eat them. Very cool bird to breed though (compared to Coturnix).
