    Here is Alex helping out in the brooder building this morning. We’ve developed a strain of quail that are perfect for dog training and hunting. Very wild acting birds. They tend to stay in the general area where they were released, they don’t bury themselves in heavy cover and they flush aggressively at the slightest pressure.

    Eggs from the flight pens are collected twice a day. When enough eggs are collected (600+/-), they go into the incubators. 17 days later they hatch and are moved to the brooder shed (with Alex’s or Basso’s help of course). Six weeks later they’re transferred out to the flight pens where the process begins again.
