    I was thinking of getting into breeding quail.I have someone that has a feeder biss. I was thinking of becoming her supplier. On a small scale of course. How do i go about this.?Or is this a good idea at all?Would i be getting into something that i shoudnt be?Just a little concerned thats all. Need some advice.

    Feeder Biss? I Take It You Mean She Sells Feeder Animals To Folks With Large Predatory Stock Or Pets? Like Snakes?

    If you want to raise quail, do it because it is something you would be interested in doing for yourself. IF (and I do mean IF) you can manage to make some money on the side by selling chicks, eggs, or grown adults, that's great....but I wouldn't bet on it.

    MOST LIKELY THIS IS CORRECT--- WE HAVE A LARGE BREEDER ON HERE WHO TRIED THIS RECENTLY--- IT WAS SOMEWHAT OF A FLOP. THEN YOU RUN INTO THE LOGISTICAL PROBLEMS--- CAN YOU MEET A STEADY DEMAND IF THEY TAKE OFF? BECAUSE FEED SALES IS GOING TO WANT A STEAD SOURCE OF SUPPLY--- NOTHING TURNS A CUSTOMER OFF LIKE HEARING "SORRY WE'RE OUT" FOR THE 2ND OR 3RD TIME...
