    Quote:I charge the same for eating and hatching eggs Oh annd hehe it's spelled COTURNIX [​IMG] (said Ka-tur-nix) only tellin ya cuz when you start selling people may be like "what's a cortunix?" LOL!

    I charge for 20+ eggs which includes shipping I honestly don't knwo what I'd charge for someone local to buy only a doz from me, probably would just give them to them if they were buying a few quails to be honest [​IMG]

    I've seen guineas go for $13+ for a doz

    I normally get at least $9 for 6 guineas eggs, so I would charge at least $1 an egg on those.

    I also get $6 for 1 dozen button quail eggs, and $5 for coturnix eggs. I haven't sold any for just eating, but I would probably charge the same either way. Most people in my area that want them for eating would rather have them pickled already, so I guess I could charge whatever! [​IMG]

    Oh, and don't feel bad about the typo, people in my area would ask 'whats a coturnix' no matter which way you say it! They think of those as 'pharoahs' [​IMG]

    Yeah, one of those dumb dumbs is kind of ticked at me I think. I sold them some jumbo brown and A&M white chicks a month or so ago. I guess they thought the A&M were the bobwhites, cause they sought me out at the auction this past week. They told me the birds aren't the white bobwhites, and I said 'I know, they are A&M's, I told you that?!?' They then asked me what an A&M was [​IMG] idiots....Not my fault they don't know their birds!! [​IMG]

    Quote:You wouldn't believe how many calls/emails i get of people wanting to buy *my* bobwhites. these people act like experts and I'm like "sorry i don't raise bobwhites i raise coturnix" then I have to explain what a coturnix is. LOL. It's like they completley miss the part on my website that states "coturnix" [​IMG]

    Thank you for correcting me. That is one thing that gets on my nerves is misspellings. I have seen it both ways and I guess my brain was just fried last night. Coturnix................ got it. [​IMG]

    Let me get this straight............... I thought A & Ms were bob whites just white in color. Please set the record straight for me. I don't like white birds. Do the A & Ms come in the pretty speckly brown "natural" color?

    the a&M are mostly white with a little brown in them, the best part about them is that they are all white meat [​IMG]
