    What do I need to know about having blue scale. I read you need a big pen them. Is this true?
    Also can they be kept with other type of quail?
    Thanks,
    Justin

    I'd like to know also. The only way I see em for sale is from a hatchery by the hundred and I don't want half that many.

    Murray Mcmurray was the only place I could find. Eggbid.com has some eggs for sale at times.

    Thanks. Are they any more difficult to deal with than Bobwhites?
