    Too much for my blood.He wants 50.00 a pair.There still a bobwhite,just a mix breed,but then again just like any other mixed breed,they get too much money for them and will not pay half the amount they get for mix breeds to get pure birds.

    Will see if I start to miss having them around.Hatch as many as you can and see if someone will trade you so you can get unrelated birds for breeding later on.Band the ones you have so you know which birds are which if you decide to get more.They came from Scott O'Brien in Maine,so you will need to find someone that got theirs from someone other then he.I believe Garry Landrie also breeds them.You can help keep them off from the endangered species forever.

    I just learned of these recently, and just love them! I hope to be able to order some soon.

    Are they really on an endangered list or headed for one?

    I believe Quailladyoffortmeyers said she would be getting pairs ready and may have eggs soon.

    What is the appeal with AH quail? I understand they are button-sized with coturnix personalities, so I assume they are just pets?
