    have you tried looking on craigslist or your local feed store for advertising? Most people don't sell live birds, they sell eggs instead because they can be easily shipped. Those that keep them will usually part with a few but they don't actively advertise them much.

    Coturnix are usually the best for beginners. They grow really fast, start laying really young, lay tons of eggs, really winter hardy. I've had all kinds too and they are still my favorite.
