Well there you are Womble! Wasn't it you who some years ago said, "What's the point of alpacas?" :thinking: :innocent:

The point of quail is .. um .. to stop poor folk hunting and eating song birds ?

Quail are pleasant little birds that cost a fraction the price of alpacas both to buy and to keep and don't require shearing each year. In addition they lay eggs, which alpacas don't. I used to keep chinese quail, which are small and pretty and I used to make 14 egg omlettes from their eggs. They are therefore arguably far more useful than alpacas.

Excellent information Landroverroy.

We should bookmark this thread for the next time somebody asks the difference between quail and alpaca.
