    Maybe you could try this place? They don't sell eggs, but maybe they'd have a breeding pair for sale?

    Pine grove pm coming to you..thats not a bad price for a pair..

    Yup emailed most of them on line that i know of, all sold out or not selling till next spring, eggs or even pairs....but i have a new pen here so i thought id try to get some this year yet, with the weather nice and cool shipping should be good to go on them..

    Yes the Mearns are awesome little birds as well as the black faced and the benson quail. Of course all the other quail are great little birds to,..Whats nice about them is they dont take up large amounts of space. Plus there calls are wonderful to hear..

    Thanks

    Yup im a member there as well. no luck..guess i should have bid when they where on eggbid a while ago..missed it and never had the pen built anyway. Got the pen now, but no birds around at this time for sale.

    I'll keep watchin though. May get lucky enough as these cooler temps may have more folks selling them yet this year..I hope..im a member at the the quail place to..

    Thanks
    Charlie
