    I'm willing to pay $7.00 for a nice young pair of Gambler Quail. Preferably ages anywhere from one day old, to about a month old.

    Thank you for your patronage..
    Best Regards, Kirsten.

    They're called Gamble Quail.

    It's gonna be hard to find a pair of quail, especially that breed, for $7.
    If you want them to be shipped, it's a bad time of year to ship birds, too cold, and day old quail don't handle shipping too well, most hatcheries require 100 quail min. to ship day olds.

    I'd check eggbid or ovabid.

    Too bad you are so far away, you could walk out into my yard and catch as many as possible. NM is loaded with Gamble Quail but unless it's quail season you can't shoot them. They love chicken feed,,,,,,,,, I did hatch some last year in class though, we had newbie quail ladies just dropping eggs anywhere in the sand of the play area and the students would bring them in and we'd add them to the bator. Good luck to you.

    Me and Ganja live in the same neighborhood and my grandfather has this darling painting of some old people gambling and playing dominoes, so we were thinking about how cute it'd be if those old men if they were quail, so when we saw the gamble quail we called them Gamblers.

    Cute! [​IMG] I can see it now...


    But she's right... this time of year, if you don't have anyone close, it's going to be hard to find them, and breeding season is past. [​IMG] I'm hoping to find/hatch some in the spring. [​IMG]

    Like others have said I doubt you will have much luck finding a pair of Gambles quail....or eggs for that matter. Also 7 bucks would probably only get you one bird. I know I would never sell a pair of Gambles for that cheap.

    And no, that is not a bad price, considering that mc murray sells them for just a little over two dollars.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    The two dollars are for newly hatched quail not a full grown breeding pair of adults !
    And at Mcmurry you have to buy 100 !
