I bought some Georgia Giant Bobwhite Quail eggs off of Ebay last fall and 3 of them hatched. I wanted to see how big these quail got compared to the Jumbo Coturnix that I have. Well, all three have turned out to be GIRLS! Can you believe that?! Oh Well. But seriously, I had no idea just how beautiful Bobwhites are. I took special care and time with these girls from the start to try and keep them from acting wild and easily frightened. I think it helped. They do not fly or panic and they talk to me constantly when I am near their cage, I just love to hear them chattering at me. They eat mealworms from my hand too. I have to say that even though I can not pick them up like I can pick up the Coturnix Quail, I have enjoyed these girls just as much. They have been calling to the wild Bobwhite boys and I have seen one in my backyard a couple of times.
