    Hello! We live in Metamora, IL. My daughter has an immune system disorder and cannot eat chicken eggs. Her doctor said it is worth trying quail eggs. We are zoned ag and can raise quail IF we can determine she can eat them. Is there anyone local we can purchase some eggs from to determine if she reacts before I plunge headlong into raising quail??? Thanks so much!!!

  3. Have you checked your grocery store? I live in a small town and the grocery stores around here have them. That might be a first step.

    Would duck eggs work for you? I could send you some once I start setting my latest group sometime next week. Or does it have to be quail?

    Yes, with no luck. Thanks for the suggestion though.
