    I have 13 brown Coturnix that I'd like to sell, what would be a fair price? They are going on 5 weeks old.

    Are they male or female? That would make a difference. I think started quail go from 2.5-4.00. I could be wrong. My uncle bought some started quail for like 3.00 each.

    This 100% depends on where you live. I can't get more than $2 a piece on adult males, but I've gotten $1 each on day-old chicks. Breeder groups (1 male, 3 females) go for $12-$15, and I don't sell females by themselves. If I do (or have less than 3 females for a male), I sell them at $4.
