    Go over the the quail thread. I just ordered MORE eggs this morning. There are numerous posts over there about what people do with their quail. The eat the eggs, eat the birds, have them for pets..... all different reasons. You can tell him that quails are cheaper to raise vs. chickens for egg production [​IMG]

    I have been thinking about getting some quail too. I'd like to pickle the eggs and eat the birds too. I really need to get all my chickens squared away first though [​IMG] Got new fuzzy butts and need more coop space - THEN I'll build a quail cage. Probably.
