    ok, i don't know what it looks like down there, but up here in canada they're pretty easy to find. you can always mail order the chicks or hatching eggs though

    Where are you in California and what type of quail are you looking for? I can probably help guide you.

    My quail are now 3 months 2 weeks old and still not laying, although they are not on artificial light. I heard the first shaky crow out of 1 of the 2 known males (I had to cull one male at 6 weeks for being aggressive and having mutilating behavior). I'm hoping eggs are coming soon, I've been checking everyday!

    I've been away for a couple weeks, didn't see this. You should start getting eggs within the week if you aren't already. My birds always start end of march and your a bit farther north so you can sort of expect beginning of april each year if you aren't lighting them. Farther away from the equator=later start.

    If they are fertile and less than 10 days old they are most likely hatchable.
