    You're probably going to have to wait until April/May when seasonal birds like bobs start to lay. Bobs and the rest of the new world quail, chukars, and pheasants only lay from April/May through the August. Best bet would be find a hatchery that will take your order now and put it in. As it gets closer to the laying season fewer and fewer hatcheries will have slots since bobs are such a hot bird for shooting farms and dog training.
