Ok.. I have lined up a "quail person" who is going to fix me up with some quail. When I asked my friend who knows the "quail person" they said the quail are "ordinary old quail". Whatever that means. I think they may be an Australian breed, like the brown quail or the stubble quail. Any ideas as to what might constitute an "ordinary quail"? http://www.birdsinbackyards.net/finder/display.cfm?id=183 Has anyone here ever kept Australian quail (I'm from Australia). I hope they're not too small for eating. Aye well, never look a gift horse in the mouth.
