    They are really simple to raise and breed. The link above this thread is full of information.

    I just started this spring with 6 bobwhites. Now I have 6 Bobwhites, 1 Mexican Speckled Bob, 9 Coturnix, 9 Button Quail (3 Colors,) 9 more Coturnix Chicks, and 11 little button quail chicks.


    They ARE addictive... [​IMG]
