Bob White Quail orders need to be on a separate online order so your order can be processed properly. They cannot be shipped with any other fowl.
The Bobwhite Quail is a small, quick, alert gamebird with elegantly striped and speckled plumage. Distinguishable from the white spot around the beak and the white stripe over the eye, the Bobwhite Quail is native to North America and its plumage is colored to allow it to fit in with dry, grassy plains or snowy hills. Introduce Bobwhite Quail to your farm for effective, natural insect control or order Bobwhite Quail for breeding, egg production or hunting. Please order Bobwhite Quail separately from any other bird to ensure proper processing.
A few years ago I ordered some Old English Game from Cackle Hatchery. In the order (unbeknown to me) were two Bobwhite Quail. One was doa on arrival, the other was a male that was raised with the chickens. He was a blessing to say the least! While I had them caged together he had to constantly be on the run, but as soon as I could I let them all run free. He still hung out with the chickens but kept his distance. He even roosted in the trees with them. This seems crazy but when I would walk out of my house and he would see me ( sometimes 20 yards away) he would fly up to me. I would always have some grain to give him. It was so neat to see a bird that is shy in the wild to be so social. Unfortunately one day he spooked in the yard and sustained a wound when he flew into a fence. He died the next morning in my hands. I don't know how that little guy made his way in the box of chickens but I'm so glad he did. I hope to get back on a farm some day soon and make an order from Cackle. That order will definitely include some Bobwhite Quail. I use to hunt quail. I couldn't do that now, not after this experience and with everything else that they have to go through to survive.

Good delivery Review by Mike D.
I had really good luck with the shipment. A few did not make it but there were extras you sent. Thank you (Posted on 12/5/2015)
