Bobwhite Quail

Bobwhite Quail or Northern Bobwhite Quail are the only quail native to the Eastern United States and are among the most popular and commonly bred game birds in the world. Bobwhite Quail can be purchased and raised for stocking hunting preserves, gourmet food purposes, gun dog training, or as farm pets.

Though they are quite hardy and adaptable, and it is feasible to raise them in many climates and environments, the Northern Bobwhite can be susceptible to the harsh winters in the northernmost parts of the country.

Bobwhite Quails are such a desirable game bird because they tend to lie close-by in "coveys" of 5 to 30 birds and are capable of fast flight. They are also a desirable bird to have around the farm because they tend to destroy certain weeds and harmful insects during feeding.

won't do this again June 16, 2015
Reviewer: Ronald Ault from Waldorf, MD United States  
55 birds arrived with four dead and the rest stressed and in poor shape- lost 17 more the first day-more dead every day- after a week, There are 15 live birds doing well. I do not want anything more from Efowl-

Hi Ron, Thanks for your review.  The bobwhites can be a bit trickier to take care of than other poultry due to their smaller size.  Temperature is more important than ever to get them acclimated to their surroundings.  Nevertheless, I'm sorry that we lost so many on your order.  It looks like we refunded you for the cost of the birds you are short on the order.  Please contact us if you have any further issues.  Thanks! ~ Austin

Age July 7, 2014
Reviewer: Dennis Hunter from Sandy Spring, MD United States  
I wasn't paying enough attention to the order.  So, I received birds that were two days old.  I thought I was ordering birds that were "fly-ready," like 3-6 weeks old and ready to release.

Arrived well packed June 5, 2014
Reviewer: Michael Morgan from Bell Buckle, TN United States  
The shipment of quail arrived as predicted with no real problems.  Only one chick didn't make the trip, which is pretty remarkable.
