    Patti and own and breed Jumbo Coturnix.....I will tell you it is almost impossible to find birds bigger than these. There was a breeder years ago who had GIANT coturnix which were bigger....but he passed and his wife sold all his birds. I will now be breeding for the future trying to create the BIG birds again...but it wont happen overnight. Also going to try and just have a mixed flock of colors and see if I can get some JUMBO colored birds.
    Also working with a breeder to import SILVER/GREY gene Coturnix birds.
