Jap quail (whatever colour) seem to be about 4.50 for a hen, 2.50-3 for a cock.

I've seen both sexes for 7 in a pet shop...but they've been sat there for some time!

When I sell mine in the States, I usually get $5-10 depending on which coturnix. Pairs are $15. I have seen them go for $20-40 a bird at Exotic Animal Auctions.

I've seen Japs advertised for sale ranging between 9 and 12 each depending on the colour - don't know if they sold at that price though

Hi,

I've got to learn to put my prices up,lol. No wonder folks keep coming back

My POL pullet (6/7 weeks old) @2.50 each, buy 5 and recive a free male.

There are no breeders where I live, and most of mine only go to families who want a few pets/eggs so no problems with compertition.
I know my birds go to good homes, and they'll be spoilt rotten, that gives me more plessure than money.

Are you talking about Melbicks? Very Happy I went in a few weeks ago and they had CPQ, Japs ans also 'Speckled Quail'. The speckled were 40 each! not for a pair!! I don't know if htey are rare but I haven't heard of them.

wow 40, I must sell some over there next year! I've got a few Mex Speckled bobwhites (still juvenilles).

They aren't that rare, just don't seem to have that many around this year. I suspect you'll find quite a few next year as I know someone with loads of them. Wink

why not ask them? Say you want to know their pedigree as you don't want to inbreed them with ones you already have. (or may potentially have at a future date).

Mex Speckled is a recessive colour mutation of bobwhites, so you have to pair with birds that have this trait to get it in their ofspring. Problem is that unless people import new stock from America, they can become a bit inbred.

I phoned up and asked prices etc and asked what they do with their eggs, they said nothing, so I asked do they sell them. The answer was no, so I asked if I bought the quail would I get the eggs it has laid in the cage, and she just said it depends. So they weren't too helpful!
I might email to ask about them as I will get a better response that way, just couldn't see an email addy on their website.

Last time I went to melbicks they only sold female japs, the CPQ were whites so I dunno if they were mixed, but there weren't any bobs!
