    It is up to you to choose which quails you want. The most common and easy to raise are coturnix quail. You can also get button quail which are very small and produce tiny eggs. If you want a more wild type, you can get california, gambel, or bobwhite quail, which require a much bigger outdoor cage.

    8.00 is allot for one bird . I sell mine for 3.00. you may want to just get some shipped in by mail. how many are you looking for? if your only wanting 4 8.00 each would not be bad and you will get your own eggs asap.

    Moving is stressful and can cause them to stop laying. If they are fed correctly(in particular with regards to protein and calcium) and have enough light and are not being stressed, they should start laying again once they get used to their new home. I'm assuming they are coturnix?

    Yes they are Coturnix Quail.
    I am using day light no additional light in the case.
    Do I need too add more light in the case?
    Can I use Costco LED shop light for them?
    How many more hour do i need to turn on the light after 6pm or untill 12 am?

    Thanks for your help

    You can use a shoplight but it's much better to use full spectrum bulbs for the health of the birds. LED light doesnt provide the proper spectrum of light for certain metabolic processes, even though it will work and people do use them (I just can't recommend one in good conscience) A cheap timer makes things a lot easier too.
