Hi Mark...
l'm not sure where you are from, but here in Ontario, Canada they average at $10 CDN each bird or $20-$30 a pair depending on colour. Hope this helps...
My hubby and son got into breding button quails in June/July of this year.
We find around here alot of people keep them more as pets than breeders....
Take care....Ladyquail07

Hi Mark,

I read a post here somewhere that the cost of shipping live quail can be very expensive. The USPS has special container requirements because quail or any other birds can carry diseases that affect humans.

So if you are in the business of selling quail, you have to push the high cost of these special containers off to the customer.

That is just something I read here.

Good Luck,
Joe

Hi,

Maybe is not very interesting and maybe is to late but in my country a quail( age 6week) have price of the same value as 3.5 kg of forage and the price of 1 kg of forage is equivalent whit 7-8 eggs.
I can change the prices in $ but, because of diferent living standard, I think the change is not edifying

In Florida they run 3 dollars each male or female and about 10 for breeding pairs
