    There are some on here that ship birds, but shipping quail chicks is not done by any of us that I know of. Quail need to eat and drink a lot sooner than chickens or other types of fowl, so the chicks die a lot easier during shipping.

    Where do you live at, and maybe someone on here has some in your area?

    ETA: Just saw your info says W. Virginia, maybe you should edit your first post and put that in your title?

    If you want to buy chicks rather than hatching eggs, I'd suggest asking at your feed mill if there are any breeders near you. Also see if thaere are any swaps nearby. Often times people take their quail to the swaps. I know we do, and so do quite a few others in our area..
