Here are some excellent ways to prepare your Jumbo Brown Coturnix Quail. While the old standard method of wrapping a piece of bacon around the bird and either throwing it on the grill or in the oven will work, there are some better ideas out there. If you try something good let me know and we'll put your recipe on the site and give you credit for sending it in! email@example.com

We are a licensed poultry dealer in the state of Georgia: PD-11355 and participate in the USDA Animal Disease Traceability Program: # 00LVGZJ.
Our hatching eggs are produced in cages that only have 1 male to 3 females, therefore there are no males fighting each other for access to the hens and all of the hens get attention and are not abused. Egg production is monitored daily and you will receive eggs from only the most productive stock on our farm. We also monitor our hatch rates through constant test hatching to ensure the fertility of the eggs we are shipping to you.
The breeders are kept in a well-ventilated and well-lit building with fresh feed and fresh water constantly available. We have over 10 years experience raising the Jumbo Brown Coturnix Quail and want you to have a great experience as you get started or as you replenish your stock. We generally try to send a few extra eggs (if available) to help cover breakage. Of course, we cannot guarantee hatchability nor can we guarantee that none will be broken. Occasionally the Post Office will damage the entire shipment and in that case, I need a picture of the damaged box and eggs, clearly showing the postage, the box and the crushed eggs and I will replace the order (you will have to pay shipping/handling costs again). If I can get the Post Office to refund my costs, then I will reship your order at no cost to you.
If you are new to this hobby, then I have a free offer for you. Send me your email and I will send you my free e-book on how to raise this wonderful gamebird. It's chock-full of helpful information to get you started on the right track covering everything from breeding, brooding and hatching to equipment selection and recommendations for vendors.
After you place your order you will be notified of the approximate ship date of your eggs. We try to avoid extreme temperatures (especially cold) when shipping eggs as including heat pads in the box may start early germination of your quail eggs and hurt your overall hatch rate. Generally we will contact you withing 48 hours of receiving your payment to advise you of the shipping date.

CONCERNING SHIPPING EGGS
We cannot guarantee your hatching sucess due to many factors (weather, shipping and incubation methods). We assure you that the eggs are fertile. If you do encounter a bad hatch( less than 25% of the purchased number of eggs) we will try to send out new eggs (if we have extras on hand) We ask that you ship the unhatched eggs back and pay for shipping on the new eggs to be shipped out. Shipping hatching eggs is very hard on the eggs. Photos will be needed with any Postal Mishap.
CONCERNING SHIPPING DAY OLD CHICKS
Day old chicks are only shipped when weather permits. We will not ship day old chicks when temperatures are below 40 degree so the shipping period is generally the end of february through October or November. We guarantee that you will receive the amount of live chicks that you paid for. We ship extra in your order if they are available, Any dead chicks will require that you take a photo immediately of the shipping box and the dead chick(s) and you will be credited on your next order.

First, the Jumbo Brown Coturnix quail is not readily adaptable to the wild any longer. The natural survival instincts of these birds have been bred out of them over may years. Believe me. I tried releasing them around my farm and weeks later they were still wandering around the farm. Slowly but surely they disappeared. I assume they became a meal for the local wildlife and stray cats.
Second, raising the Jumbo Brown Coturnix quail on the ground in a confined area keeps them walking in their own manure and will lead to an outbreak of disease and increased mortality in your flock. In the wild, coturnix quail are able to move around and avoid the manure. While raising them on wire has some negative aspects, such as injured feet occasionally, the positives outweigh the negatives in my opinion.
I wrote a small book, "The Original - How to Raise Coturnix Quail" back in 2009 and I will send it to you for free. It's in PDF format and has some good information for those just getting started. For your copy, send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the book, you can feel free to write me for information or opinions that may not be included in the book. I look forward to helping you on your journey.
Comments on the book
I found your book to be an excellent resource for the beginner interested in raising Coturnix. You obviously have a wealth of knowledge with these birds. Your book conveys this knowledge in easy to read and understand chapters. Thanks to your work I feel much less intimidated about raising these intriguing little birds. Keep up the good work.
Thanks so much for your time to put together a good guide to raising coturnix quail.
