    Hello,

    I have noticed that a lot of people keep Quail... What are they for? Eggs? Pest control? Meat? [​IMG] I don't know! I have spent a lot of time trying to figure it out! Thanks for all the help!

    Seriously Tho, They Are Kept For Many Reasons... Eggs, Meat, Or Just Eye Candy Of 1 Sort Or Another, All Depends On The Keeper I Suppose?

    Why? Because I have too many and I am stuck with them LOL

    I have quail because they are interesting to study, manipulate the colors, breed, test out the colors, and the eggs are yummy. But also I breed some for color, some for size (jumbos), some for pets (button quail), I have some hobby quail (African Harlequin, valley quail, bobwhite), they are just COOL :p

    I know its taboo to say "must", but there has to be exceptions to any rule...right is right.
