    The feed or "fuel" for them would probably be expensive too! LOL [​IMG]

    Sounds Like A Local Slang Term.... I Am Unfamiliar With Anything Even Remotely Close To Jet Quail

    I thought to myself " I wonder what they taste like? " but I doubt anyone has ever caught one lol


    I would guess its slang for Coturnix, I have heard Coturnix be called everything around here from Bible quail, cot-ter-necks, japs, cots, browns, etc etc
