    Usually 5 to 15 birds. I did have a covey last year of 20 plus so not sure if two coveys joined together?? From what I see our average is around 10 or 12 birds in the covey.

    Over weekend saw quail that were late hatch. Could only fly a few feet and barely get above grass to do so. Makes sense with the early rain there are some late nests.
