    Heres some updated photos of our Slatebelt Bobwhites, notice they are in a standard size cat litter pan, this is there dust bath pan that i use play sand and a mix of dio earth in for them.. don't think i can breed them much larger than these, guess we'll know after this breeding season starts with them all over again.. this perticular group is in its 4th+ year of production here.. used a mixture of stock to build size and just selected certain breeders for those 4 years..definetly a hand full of bobwhite they are..lol

    They sure are pretty birds.. I'm afraid of them eating each other.. I don't know if I'll ever attempt to raise them!

    Will do fellas on the eggs...

    They are very timid right now in there monster group, but when breeding starts up the females and males will become very territorial, they are in a pen 4ft x 10ft at the moment.. got other pens ready to brake them up when the time comes.. all of our other types of bobs are broken up already. but this batch's time is coming as well...
