    so when i first started with quail i bought 5 birds, 1m 4 females, thru the time 4 of them died, 2 from snakes and um, i relaly can't remember how the other 2 died lol. Anyway, i got one of my original birds left and jebuss, she is big. Here is a photo i took today, my hand isn't to fat but i have long fingers, so you can judge yourself how big she is

    i don't have a scale she would fit on or else i would weigh her.

    she doesn't even fit in my hands, approx age is 8-10 months.

    That is a big girl!

    She looks alot bigger than mine, and she weighed in at 10 oz recently. You need to get a scale! lol... I use a postal scale and love it.
