    I want to write an article on Butler Bobwhites. I can find plenty of info about their characteristics but so far have had no luck about lerning about their origins ... how they got their name ... etc ... etc

    I tried Wikipedia and FeatherSite, but nothing.

    If you know when and how they came to be, please reply.

    They started out over 40 years ago from a man in Butler Illinois..just like the Cunninghams they originated in Mississippi, Indiana Giants from Indiana and the Georgia Giants from Ga..Truth be known they're all the same strain of birds..Contact Gus Rhodes from what used to be Bear Bayou Quail Farm, He can tell you more about it...
