    My buttons are the only quail that are laying for me right now. So, if you want some button quail, let me know. I can have about 12-15 by Monday morning.
    Now my chickens... that's an entirely different story. They're ALL laying!

    JJMR794 seems to have a lot of Coturnix laying right now, You might want to contact him if you want those.

    Our white bobwhites don't start laying until about April/May. You're welcome to check in spring to see what we have at that time.

    I'm getting 10-15 eggs per day I've never shipped before, but would like to try to.
    I have 50 eggs saved up now.
    mine are white with spots but not large enough to be A & M's maybe 10 oz
    They are great breeders. hatch 18 to 19 days, start crowing at 6 weeks and laying at 8 to 9 weeks.
    Let me know if interested, also they past for NPIP

    I am in Florida and we are getting 40-50 eggs a day. Mostly Jumbo Brown Coturnix, but a few Tuxedos and Whites.
    I've shipped several times with good reports on packaging and fertility. I use special quail egg cartons and lots of padding
    in a large box. 3.00 a dozen/12.00 shipping. Our birds and eggs are big!
