    I have 4 coturnix in a cage almost exactly that size and it works fine. I'm not sure about the size difference between the two types of quail though.
    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    I would go with coturnix becuase there mellow, bobwhites your going to need a big flight pen becuase they like to fly and get starteled if something scares them and if they hit the roof with enough force they can brake there necks. just my 00.2 o and make sure to take lots of pics! [​IMG]

    well, it depends if they are chicks, adults, roos, hens, pairs ect.. i dont know alot about quail either so i really dont know what the price would be. theres some people selling some on the other poultry section on the forum.
