I've had bobwhite, Californian, blue scale, lots of nice quail out there just not much going at the moment. I have a pair of red legged partridge and some Chinese quail with them and they get on fine. I'm looking for more of the smaller breeds like jungle bush and harlequin which are a lovely quail. All just ornamental. What are you looking for yourself ?

Drove 4 hours to pick up eggs to avoid shipping. I washed the eggs in hydrogen peroxide before putting them in the incubator. 6 of them floated.... could not believe it. Contacted them to let them know. They said I should not of washed the eggs and there is no refund. We purchased 120. 114 went into the incubator only 46 hatched. Iím not a novice when it comes to hatching. I usually get between 80-90% to hatch; so 38% is appalling. A very good portion of the chicks demonstrated vitamin b deficiency; thrown back heads and loads of curled up feet. Will not be getting eggs from them again and I would not recommend them to anyone.

I will be offering eggs as soon as they start laying.

I breed the Italian jumbo and have been posting eggs for the last few months and I have had only one bad hatch report , don't know what went wrong with it , but I have offered new eggs plus refund , I always ask my customers to let me know if they get on OK as i like to be treated in the way I would like to be treated if I have ordered eggs . I'm only a small breeder but I feel bad if someone gets a bad result.
