    Hello guys

    There is this guy who is interested in trading some of his bobs for 1 pair of california valley quails and 2 female coturnix

    he offers me 5 female bobs and 1 male

    he says his birds are 2 years old, are they good for getting eggs for hatching?

    or are they to old?

    thank you guys

    God No Thier Not Too Old... Still Youngins

    The Ratio May Not Work Well... Hens Tend To Make The Decisions With Adult Bobs... Evil Lil Wenches They Can Be.... Many Do Not Play Well With Others. I Suppose Worse Case Scenario You May Have To Seperate Some Of The Hens Or Even Solitary Some And Give Them Conjugal Visits With The Roo???

    Hard To Say For Sure Until You Get There...
