Bobwhite Quail

We sell the Northern Bobwhite Quail. These wonderful little birds are great flyers, delicious eating, excellent for training your hunting dog, and just fun to raise. They mature in 16 weeks and dress between 7-9 oz. They will have started laying eggs by 24 weeks and are prolific layers. Bobwhites can be put with other types of quail after arrival. Quail are either shipped by Express Mail or Priority Mail and come insured. Please open and inspect your shipment at the post office. They will usually arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday. Quail must be shipped in warmer weather and are available from June through mid September. Quail are very popular and a delight to raise.

We will begin shipping Bobwhite Quail the week of April 23.  

BOBWHITE QUAIL: For safe delivery, your order must total 100 or more birds. We can't mix the different breeds of quail to make 100. Before buying these birds, please check with the Regulatory Agency in your state that controls wildlife management. You may need a permit.

The state of Wyoming requires a vet check on quail orders entering the state. That is an additional $50. per quail order.


Do not give quail city water, as it contains too much chlorine and flouride.

It is also recommended that the temperature at floor level be 95-97 degrees the first week, reducing it by about 5 degrees per week thereafter.

**IMPORTANT** Baby quail need finely ground feed. If your starter feed is too coarse, it will need to be ground a second time before it is fed to baby quail.  This will make it more palatable to the chicks.

*Please note the following restriction:

The following states can only receive Bobwhite Quail shipments from June 9-September 8:  ID, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NH, NY, OR, SD, VT, WA, WI, & WY.  Please book your order within these dates!
