I went to an Exotic animal auction the other day, and could not believe the final prices on some Button quail I was bidding on. They had a cage of 20 button quail and starting bid was $2.00 per bird, I went as high as $4.00. when it was all done they went for $15.00 a piece. I could not believe how high they went.

Hi Mark...
Here in Ontario, Canada...we average about 5-10 dollars per bird. lt all depends on the time of year and what people are looking for...

Most sales around here are in the $2-5 range. I had gone to another auction and had them listed for $10 a piece and $15 a pair. I had people tell me those prices were way too high, but when you do price checks on the Internet that was the going rate for them. I just hate how people tell you, that you are over charging on these birds.
