    Default Quail vs Pigeons for training(NJ)

    I'm having a tough time tracking down some pigeons in my area. Does anyone see any major differences in using quail vs pigeons? If anyone in the southern New Jersey area can give me any leads on pigeons, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    Pigeons are usually less expensive and hold up better than quail.

    Most game farms that sell quail also sell chuckars. Much better for training.

    Quail are so little that they are easily "munchable", plus they're fragile. I agree with trying some chukars.

    Pigeons fly........I use farm chuckers and quail but I hate them. Pigeons are way better in my opinion. Don
