    I've never heard of or seen these quail before. You're lucky!

    You trapped em, so cool!

    Are they button size? Can you mix em with button?

    Also for harlequin (do you have?), can they mate with Cots? Can you show us a comparison if you have?

    firstly you get 2 types of harlequin quail, firt i see people refer the montuzuma or mearns quail as the harlequin quail which I only saw on pictures and far as I know not availeble in South Africa the seconldly you get the african harlequin quail which is native to south africa which you must have a permit to keep it here are some pic with it

    I will not prefer to mix two different species with each other cause it will get bloody and I m not a forrunner for cross breeding

    Not the Mearns, LOL. They go for $300+ easily. No, i'm just looking for Harlequin, i was wondering about the mating as a size reference.
