    Hey all! I am looking to give a try at some quail again. I have built a styrofoam incubator and let it run for a few days. Looks like it is staying pretty constant. I am looking for some eggs now and seems a bit overwhelming. Looked on ebay, but I can't seem to get over the feeling that I could get jipped on some none fertile eggs. Any recommendations on where I could get some? I had bobwhites a number of years ago but started with chicks. Looking for some Coturnix. Any info on either breed would be appreciated.

    The choice of breeds is a personal one. Bobs and coturnix are two very different birds... Good Luck, Bill

    I understand that the 2 are different as I had the BW's. I haven't had much luck with any local leads that wouldn't result in a good drive to get. I also don't mind building extra pens. I certainly will keep you posted on either or both breeds.
