    Hi Sara,

    A long time since this thread has been replied to, but I was hoping that you’ll still be looking here from time to time.
    My wife and I keep ducks (4 Runners and an Appleyard so far, but we’re moving to bigger premises soon hopefully) and would like to keep some quails too. We obviously have a separate enclosure ready for them, and were wondering if you did ever find out if there’s any quail breeders/sellers in Somerset, Frome to be precise, which is about 20 miles south of Bath.

    Many thanks for any help you can offer here.

    Kindest regards,

    Hiya Sara,

    I am starting a quail buisness and am stuck on a dilemma of cost.
    I was wondering how much eat of these would cost as: 12 h/e, 6wk+ Cock, 6wk+ Hen, Breeding pair and Breeding trio… I have Gambels, Chinese Painted, and Coturnix (Tibetan, Italian, Blonde, Japanese & Tuxedo). If you could help I’d be very grateful,
