    I'm pretty sure almost all breeds of quail fly. I've only had Cortunix, and they can fly.

    They can all fly. The easiest to handle are jumbo browns. If you clip a wing it will keep the flying down

    Mine if they did fly would just sit there and wait for to pick them up.. They dont seem to go as crazy as some caged birds when they get out...
