coturnix. for their eggs and meat. buttons for their colors and personalities, california quail are just the "picture perfect" quail to me. and mountains are the most unique and gorgeous. sorry i dont have one favorite..
I think they all have their ups and downs. I like bobs all around, but the califonia's are more eye pleasing, and the coturnix are more productive. I would love to have a bunch of bobs in my yard just to listen to them "talk".
