    Hi all! New to the forum. I only have a few grouse now but am really interested in getting started on quail. Nice looking forum here. Where would be a good place to get a start, buy birds?

    My name is Duane

    I've always been interested in grouse but can't keep them here cause theyre so susceptible to disease they can pick up from my waterfowl & poultry. Others I know have tried grouse but lost them to disease or what not. What species of grouse do you have?

    They are western Ruffed grouse. I have 11 now. They sort of stupid compared to the eastern strain. Most here call them fool hens

    I may have to swap you later on. I was going to send another on a different forum for some quail eggs but can't get on the forum now. I will get in touch if I have any extra
