    Hi everyone! Im a new member who is currently raising brown quail who is interested in some selective breeding. I had no idea that some breeders out there are AVERAGING birders bigger than 13 oz, NICE WORK! I didn't know you could get bigger eggs too. Looking forward to posting some pics of a 4-tier 2X3 quail pen im designing for 30-60 quails!

    I am also new and I am raising quail for meat and eggs. I am primarily interested in being self-sustaining. Could someone point me in the directions of where to start reading so that I understand this thread? Should I be looking somewhere else for info?

    F1 means First Filial or first generation of a cross. F2 would be the second generation of a cross and so on.

    I'm really interested in this. Are you combining A & M with browns. Besides large birds what is your goal? Larger eggs? More eggs?

    How do the jmf recessive whites compare to the jmf meat maker browns? Can the browns be feather sexed? Any information would be appreciated
