    Glad to have found this site. Joined a couple weeks ago, but just now getting a chance to post something. I will officially retire from the Army this summer after 25 years. The nice thing is that I will finally be in one place for longer than 2 years and can start breeding quail again. I raised Coturnix, Buttons, and some Bobwhites about 15 years ago when I was in the same location for 3 years or so. I had to sell everything when the Army transferred me to Germany. I'm retiring in Pennsylvania. I have some Coturnix and Mearns eggs in the incubator right now. Will see how it goes. Basically joined the site to learn more about the Mearns as I was never able to afford them before. I have 6 eggs out of 9 that have made it to day 24, with 1 pipping this evening. (paid $291 for the 9 eggs by the way) I will post pics under the quail forum if all goes well.

    Thank you sincerely for your time in service. I have never heard of "Mearns," but, I am sure someone else has. Wow, their eggs must be golden to cost so much. Sending good hatching vibes your way [​IMG]
