I have been ordering faithfully from hare-today for quite some time (a year or more) and haven't ever had any problems. A couple of months ago, without changing the name of the product or anything, they replaced their defeathered quails (bone/organ in, head on) with de-organed, headless, defeathered quails, and now it seems they no longer offer quails with heads and organs (excepting ones with feathers).
Did anyone else notice this? What a bummer.
Ezzy's main foods are whole mice, whole quail (defeathered, bone/organ in, head on) and ground beef organs. Does anyone have any suggestions on who I could look to now that hare-today no longer provides the quails with organs in? I specifically hope to order everything from the same place... I've checked out 3 places now that don't provide all of these things and I'm not sure where else to look, so suggestions would be a lifesaver.

Do you need to be able to order the organs as well online?
Rodentpro.com was my go to when I was ordering whole prey. Right now quail are on backorder but they will have them in a few days. If you wanted you could switch to full whole prey, do mice and quail and another item (rabbit, guinea pig, rat) and eliminate the beef organs.
@machan D'oh, I totally missed that post! Thanks, I'll look there!
@desiree The organs are really just a precautionary in case he's eating too much bone/muscle and not enough organs with his whole meals. But it's probably not necessary. I will definitely look at RodentPro.com - thank you!

wondering what the best supplier is for me in WA state... I have issues getting organs right now (I have hearts and livers and gizzards but no necks and no kidneys and no spleen and no pancreas but I want brains and sweat breads and so on too, or whole prey but this isn't all that).
I will get organs from friends soon but not soon enough and could also still go talk to the butcher but I would rather get whole prey and I would rather it is organic (although I did find local chicken hearts raised in a chicken tractor in the sun shine on always fresh grass).
Bitbyter is building a list of providers and when he publishes it, you might find something in your area. We have several members in Washington State. I'll keep an eye out and when I see one, I'll post to them. In the meantime, some of them may see this and offer some other ideas.
Have you tried googling Find Asian Markets near your location?
