I KNOW THERE IS A WAY TO DIZZY A BIRD SO WHEN YOU PUT IT DOWN IT WILL STAY FOR QUITE A WHILE. I HAVE DONE IT IN THE PAST WITH PIGEONS BUT TRIED IT TODAY WITH QUAIL AND IT DIDN'T WORK FOR SOME REASON. MAYBE I'M NOT DOING IT RIGHT???

On a video I have it says just to put there head under there wing and pull there feet back straight do this for 20-30 sec and they are usually out.  then by the time you get your dog out there they are alittle more alert to fly off without the dog catching them

Britt hunter is right.  If you want them to sleep a little longer, after you tuck their head under the wing and pull their feet, lay them down on the wing that their head is tucked under.

The method I like best for quail is to put them in a feed sack (with gloves on), swing the sack around in a circle 5-10 times, grab the bottom of the sack, and shake out the bird(s) into the cover and walk away. I have put out several little coveys this way and all will stay put and fly well when you flush them.

There was discussion at great length about "dizzying birds" on the old forum. It was criticised harshly by more than one member who had a lot of experience. I don't remember who it was, but they said it "wasn't necessary" and it many times resulted in poor flushes and less than desireable flyers. Not speaking from personal experience mind you. Just regurgitating information I found on this site in the past.

All my birds are released from a JH and fly off on there own before working the dog on them.
