Hi folks last Monday we had some mearns quail shipped  from WI  to us in MI not a big deal they did not arrive on Tuesday we checked tracking  the only info was they had  been checked in in WI which is norm for USPS so we watched out for them Wednesday morning  still no sign checked tracking again still nothing updated on them so we started calling  and finally they put  out an alert on the birds  finally got a call on Thursday morning 6 am they called to come pick up at the local post office birds were all fine  they had eaten the apples  put in the  shipping  box just goes to show  we really do need a water source and foods  source in the shipping box in case of  times like these Jim www.emeraldisleaviary.com

Hi Jim

glad it worked out alright. Are these adults or chicks? I am guessing adults.

Are you going to be selling eggs this year?

Good luck, that'll help in the long and short run. If I had more space I'd do more Quail but also want only the ones that can do well in outdoor pens in this climate.  There are certainly a number of species I'd like if I was in a warmer clime, but otoh, have the Grouse family can work with here.

If either one of you guys at some point this year could spare a dozen or so of the mearns eggs, I'd be more than grateful. Or, if you know where I could get a couple pairs would help too.

Thank you!

Glad everything turned out well. I agree that a food and water source during shipment is desirable.
