We ship Mondays only by ground UPS to the western states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Shipping time is two to three days via ground UPS. Average shipping and handling varies from $30-$45 based on destination and will be more $$ than shown on your order confirmation. The shipping cost also covers the cost of the cooler box. If you do not live in those Western States the quail must be shipped by 3-day air at a much higher cost since it is a frozen commodity. If that is the case, please contact us for a quote for UPS air service.
Six-month old quail averages 6.5-7 ounces each (weights with legs removed).
Our minimum order is one box of 100 quail. One-half to one whole quail is a full day's meal for a raptor the size of a Peregrine Falcon, Red-tailed Hawk or Great Horned Owl. Much less for smaller raptors. We advise a sprinkle of Vitahawk Maintenance vitamins on the quail every few days for best nutrition.
Our quail are supplied to us by a commercial breeder. The quail are humanely dispatched with CO2 gas then blast frozen and kept at -10F to reduce bacteria growth. Each batch of 2000-3000 quail are laboratory tested with random samples for Avian Flu, Avian Bordatella and Claustridia.
