To mini hijack this, I'd like to hear from anyone who will have Mearns and Mt eggs for sale.  I just want to establish several pairs of each.

finnegan is one of the few with mearns but I don't think he sells them. Only trade. I have never found a source for mearns.

I usually get my mnt. quail eggs out on eggbid.com but there wont be any eggs available till spring. a few auctions for mature mnt. quails though.

There's a guy right now on eggbid selling Mnt. quails in Michigan but pickup only due to the weather. 2 males and 1 female for $75. too bad he won't ship or else I would purchase them.

If you are interested in mearns quail, you should join the yahoo group- "neotrop-quail".

Hi Jim

I'm in no hurry, as I said I just want enough eggs or chicks to make several pairs, the same for Mtn Quail. That will be enough Quail for me for next year. I may have a lead on some Bamboo Partridge ,  so am going to be in a major pen building mode this year, probably all year.  The Quail though I can keep in the batterys in the garage.

Hi Jum

I have some Mearns eggs promised for spring so if all goes well I might have some eggs for trade late in the season.

Re: the Bamboos, are yours quiet or flighty ?  I think they are one of the more beautiful Partridge. Do you keep yours in colony groups or pairs? I have heard of both working.

Hi Jim

Once I get a couple or three pairs of each I will have plenty of eggs to trade with other breeders. I got the Game Bird Gazette with the article , very good and a pleasant surprise.

Where are you located ?
