    I've been wanting to start breeding coturnix on a larger scale but will need to find a faster and easier way of selling them. I thought of selling them to pet stores, I know the ones around me sell buttons but I have never seen coturnix being sold. So I'm wondering if any of you have or have seen coturnix sold in pet stores, or have any other ideas of ways I would be able to sell them.

    I just picked up 30 jumbo brown coturnix from a local guy selling on craigslist. He hatched around 80 the week I picked mine up. He had sold out from the previous week. When I got mine there was only 45 left. He also sells a mating trio of one roo and two hens for $15 for the trio. The newly hatched are $1ea or 30 for .75ea. Hope this gives you some ideas. You can also sell the eggs on ebay.

    Thanks for the ideas!
    That's pretty impressive, might give it a try.
