    I believe what I am looking for are known as California Valley Quail. I live in SW Washington State and I think I saw a few of these birds in the wild around here a couple of years ago. They seem to be quite plentiful just across the Columbia river in Oregon, which has exactly the same climate (very wet) as I have at my location. I would like to get 100 straight run, if the price is not TOO high....
    I'm sure that Desert Quail or the Texas quail would not tolerate our damp climate..Thanx

    For that many birds it will cost a small fortune.If you could hatch eggs it will be more cost efficient.If I recall,they go for about 30.00 a pair for breeders.I would guess that someone would need to have a lot of breeders to sell them in lots of 100,not saying it's impossible.
    In N.H.,Tony.
