    How much do grown Bob's usually sell for? I don't like what I have ended up with and was thinking about getting me another 20 Butlers. Mine just aren't big enough

    I would never pay over $5ea for normal bobs $3 is a fair price here, 5 is outragous.

    Are you meaning to buy for eating purposes or to start breeding them?

    I want some big as I can get Butler Bobwhites for breeding. I guess I should talk to JJ. I don't think I will find what I'm looking for for $5 each. The ones I have are just to small to be butlers. I think someone told me a story when I bought them. I'm sure they will be good eating.

    Ted How Old Are They? Keep In Mind True Butlers Will Continue To Grow Throughout Their 1st Yr (albeit At A Slow Rate)
