    Hello All,
    I am looking to buy some quail. I would prefer A&M or Snowflake bobwhite. I am also looking for blue scale quail. I have had the hardest time tracking some down in my area. I am in the north Florida area and Tallahassee or Live Oak or anywhere in between are the most convenient for me. Any help would be fantastic!

    Hello there :)

    I found my quail through our Canadian online buy and sell site called Kijiji and it's also where I sell mine :D

    Have you had quail before? I know that Coturnix (A&M) and bobwhites are very different and blue scale quail are extremely skittish, they don't even like to be looked at and can act crazy and hurt themselves - my experience :p

    They never hurt themselves because we padded the ceiling but we ended up giving ours to Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls so they had a huge aviary and privacy, couldn't stand seeing them so stressed in the cage :/ they are truly beautiful though! Definitely not domesticated [​IMG]
