    Is Cutlers the best place to buy based on price?

    I ordered mine from GQF. The free shipping they had going on made it the cheapest and they threw in thirty quail eggs. Didn't need any quial, so we gave the eggs to the ravens.[​IMG]

    But you could have hatched out the quail and let them loose to run the desert!

    The coyotes would have loved you.
