    For my next hatch I was wanting to do some fancy colors of Jumbo Coturnix quail. Where is the best place to get the best eggs for the best price? [​IMG]

    JJMR794 says he has all colors of jumbo coturnix...I haven't hatched any from him yet [​IMG]

    I have several different colors of coturnix, but only about half the birds (golden and brown) are jumbos, and they are all in the same pen right now. I have some cinnamon, but no silvers.

    I don't know if this is at all what you are looking for, or how this vendor's prices compare to average, but I ordered my batch of eggs from her:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/50-Assorted-Cot...tem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item23084e86d0

    I chose this vendor because she seemed to be offering the biggest variety of colors in the mix.

    She mailed them out the next day, and they were extremely well packaged. I intentionally haven't touched them once I put them in the incubator, other than candling a few last weekend. At that point, 5 of 5 I candled were alive and developing. Lockdown is wednesday.

    She is quailladyfromftmyers on here, a new member [​IMG]

    And there is no thing as tibetan chocolate; there is dark tibetan, rosetta tibetan, red tibetan, and golden range. There's another thread where I posted pics of each, some birds that I still have and some that I've had in the past.

    Its the reason for my wanting some other colors as it stands out from the croud so much.
