Quail is a collective name for several genera of mid-sized birds generally considered in the order Galliformes. Many of the common larger species are farm-raised for table food or egg consumption, and are hunted on game farms or in the wild, where they may be released to supplement the wild population, or extend into areas outside their natural range.

Hi, Eleu, my neighbor today again,
Oh, yes, I know this rural bird, some farmers has got good business with this one. Frankly speaking I have never try their eggs. amazing colors, but I think you did not have the time for change the camera settings. It could be better with high ISO.

Very nice birds snapshot. The bird in FG is in very good light, nice tilted arrangement.
The selective focus makes this photo special.
