I agree with you about quail not flying well and teaching the dog bad habits. The point I was making was after you have the dog steady
You can use quail as shooters. They don't fly and land fifty yards out, there a pillow of feathers @ thirty feet and you

I'm no expert here but don't drag dead birds on the ground. Number one thing you want is the head up
Checking the wind for scent.
Also, you don't need a lot of homers, we are traning our dog with six and counting. You only need a few homers
Until there steady then you can move to shooters, or quail.
