Image?[edit]

Can we not find any actual photographs of quails without copyrights?

There are a few here and here. I don't really see what's wrong with the current image, though. -- Visviva 15:49, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Fly?[edit]

To what extent do these 'terrestrial birds' fly? Do quail hunters shoot them on the ground or in the air? ike9898 13:25, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Cheney[edit]

Not only is the Cheney bit irrelevant, but he would have a hard time finding Old World quail in the US. jimfbleak 07:43, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

rrr[edit]

We need a real picture here!

I need WAY more information here

bevy[edit]

Can someone explain why my last edit was reverted? A flock of quails is called a bevy. That is a fact. --HappyDog 15:27, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

There are two problems with this - "flock" and "covey" are much more common for any game bird, and whilst "bevy" may be used for the Common Quail, I think it would need a citation that it is used even as an alternative for all the world's quail species. Jimfbleak.talk.15:52, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

style[edit]

I've separated out the New World quail sentence to make it easier to read for the next Dick Cheney/globalise editor, but I'm not optimistic. Jimfbleak 05:42, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

As pets[edit]

Nothing here about quails as pets... I guess it's not common, but a bit of info would be nice.Phyte 14:51, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

New External Link[edit]

I would like to have a new External Link added to the page, if possible, for a quail group that has been started.


Link Name: The Quail Forum

Address: http://www.quailforum.com

Description: A friendly place for quail breeders and hobbyists to come and chat.


Many thanks,

So long as it's not an advertisement, it's fine with me. Chrisrus (talk) 06:13, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
