    so i had hatched out a batch of coturnix quail and had too many males so i put up an ad on craigslist to sell a few roo's at three bucks a pop, after a few days i got a call and a couple near me wanted them so i said that they could just have them because they were taking up cage space, when we met up the "buyer" asked me if i had other quail, i explained to him about my valleys, butler bobs, gambels, blue scales, and he told me that if i wanted he had some mexican speckled bobwhites laying like crazy and i could have the adults or eggs, so i opted for eggs so that i will have time to build a cage, long story short i just traded coturnix for mexican speckled JACKPOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    congrats Little_Bigfoot!

    Male anything for anything is a good trade.

    always nice to meet people with the same way of thinking,

    yup, paying it forward, we "gave" away 10 EE chickie chicks to an older gentlemen this weekend, double amputee, but I felt the chicks will have a great home and now, he asked what he owed me, I said "just asking was enough".

    I think BigJim and I will be roasting pig parts together one day. and I have more friends and places to build pens and coops.
