Hello! I am raising coturnix quail for eggs and as pets. I currently have three quails, two females and a male (Pharoah, Texas A&M, and Tibetan/Red). I’m hoping to get an additional laying female to add to my flock, as the male tends to mate when anxious and it can stress the females (they’re losing some pretty head feathers!). I want to get a pretty hen that looks different from my others, perhaps Tuxedo? I live in Alabama and can’t seem to find anything local (including Craigslist) other than the breeds I already have, and because they’re pets we’d like to be able to tell them apart even from another room, as we can the current ones. I’m looking online but having trouble finding fully-grown hens that do not require large orders- I only want one more!!! Can anyone help me or show me where to look? Thank you!
