Bobwhite Quail is a bird native to the United States and Mexico. The name "bobwhite" was derived based in the bird's characteristic whistling call.
The bird is one of the most familiar quails in the eastern North America because there are rarely other quail in it's region.
These birds are hunted extensively as game birds.
Our bobwhite quail farm is designed to raise quality wild quail chicks.
