    Well it seems like every year around January I get my bator out....goo on eggbid...and place some bids though I shouldn't!! Well I'm currently bidding on mixed batch of Bobwhite eggs. I have been breeding/working with Coturnix for awhile but I miss my bobs. So now that I have all my Coturnix sold off...I will be focussing on small numbers of both Bobwhite and Coturnix. The auction I bid on has...

    White
    Orange
    Tenn/White
    Tenn/Orange
    White/Orange

    Bob eggs. Might be a few Jumbo in there too. And I will be trying to get eggs from Red/Red Tuxedo Coturnix...and Platinum Coturnix. Just to refresh everyones memory...one of my old red tux hens.

    Where are you finding auctions for quail? I am new to this but looking at getting an incubator to hatch some eggs with my kids and raise some for meat and eggs along with some chickens, turkeys and rabbits.

    Check local salebarns or livestock auctions (ask on local classifieds or search google to see if you can find any). If you want, you can also order them on ebay, eggbid or even through this site.

    Sam Have You Missed Some Medications?


    Cause I've Checked Every Bator I Own And Cant Find An Off Switch!

    Lol- Just Kidding.



    Me I'm Hooked On Hatch So I Always Have 2 Or More Running Even In The Off Months. Peak Season This Place Will Look Like A Bator Factory!
