    Mountain quail are not right for you. They are a little too hard for your experience level, but if you must it will cost a lot of money and loss. I would buy a few coturnix eggs to start out with. Just remember they are not bobwhites, and need to be cared for differently. Look at mine or quail lady's website for instructions on care. If you need more look at your other thread that asked the same question.
