I have 10 quail that are 4 weeks old and fully feathered. It won't be too long before they are laying. I intended to build a pen to keep them as pets but time and situation is working against me. I do not want these to go as meat birds. They are pets and enjoyed by a toddler. Please have a heart and do not contact me if you have supper on the mind. They are beautiful birds, some are white and other colors. I am located in central Louisiana. Will not ship.
