    Hello,

    My name is Whitney and I am an East TN resident new to poultry. Both my parents have raised poultry before in small scale and I recently bought three Sex-Linked babies and plan on getting three buff orpington babies in a few weeks. I was wondering about Northern Bob White Quail, we were interested in gettng some quail as well but everywhere I have looked at babies I have to buy a minimum of 50 or 100. Is there anywhere I can find quail in a smaller number to buy, perhaps 10 or 20 ? Thank you very much !!

    i got my eggs today... i ordered 90, but they shipped me 135... i dont have anough roomin my incubator. i could ship then to you, but then they may be a bit old.. 6 days or so... if you apply for a gamebird propagation permit/license you could get them more locally,i'll give you th address to the place i got mine from
    try emailing [email protected] or calling 423-733-8261 they are located in Sneedville Tn... i think thats north-central Tn
