    Hello, I am beginning a breeding project with 6 species of quail on a small scale. I was wondering incubation periods and humidity levels.
    Also any tips abt breeding?
    My planned species are:
    California Valley
    Mearn's (Montezuma)
    Bobwhite
    Snowflake Bobwhite
    Gambel's
    Mountain

    If anyone has any eggs available for next spring I will be happy to purchase them if I don't already have a contact set up!
