    Just talked to this guy and gonna ride out and check it out later today. He says it is a good deal...he is also selling it! lol And I sure don't know. Worst case, I get to check out his operation. Says he sold 11,000 quail this year. I have 22 jumbo pharaohs. lol

    Anyway, I would love some input if this is a good value before Mr. Impulse over here rides an hour to check it out later this afternoon. And could this be permanent housing for them? Do I need to have a pen with a little enclosed "coop" are off wire to give em a break from standing on wire? I plan to incubate some eggs to expand the numbers...the purpose is to raise them for eggs and meat.

    He's firm at $425 for it.

    Side note funny: I sent a picture to my sister of the lil baby quail a few days after they hatched. She said OMG they are sooo cute...how are going to eat them!!!? I replied...probably bacon wrapped and grilled. [​IMG]

    Happy Labor Day e'rybody!

    Sounds like a good deal... you cant even buy a 3 ft battery breeder pen for that price. Where is it located? If you dont take it I would be interested in it, provided its nearby! jason

    Hey Jason. I bought it. It is in great shape and I think it was a great value.

    And...two of the nicest people I have ever met. Sent me home with all kinds of goodies...ton of eggs ready for the incubator or my belly. And pickled eggs, and catfish!
    They have a great setup out there for all their quail and have just a wonderful happy life. It was worth the $425 to talk to them about quail as their knowledge and experience is massive...not to mention all the eggs...they are going on vacation tomorrow and loaded me up! And priceless to count them as new friends.

    If anybody in SC needs quail, eggs, help...I can't imagine there is anyone better to deal with. Just good people.
