Celadon Blue Quail Eggs Research and the Autosomal Recessive "ce" Gene - Page 2

post #11 of 13

The celadon egg gene is a single gene. Celadon eggs in quail are similar to celadon eggs in chickens it's a result of internal biology. If you read the blue eggs section on this site it gives a general description. This site gives a much more scientific viewpoint but is a hard read. 

 

As of right now hatching and breeding only blue eggs has not led to an increase in the expression of the ce egg gene for anyone I've talked to.

Im getting 44 Celadon eggs from James Marie Farms.  I know nothing about them.  Do they hatch out a particular look in quail or do all color varieties, golden, brown, white, etc have an occasional hen who will produce a blue egg?  Im just wondering what to expect as to what will actually hatch.

 

 Im also getting 16 "Schofield 6th and 7th generation" in the order.  I know nothing about these either.  If you are scratching your head wondering why I ordered these if I know nothing about them it is because I contacted James Marie Farms looking to purchase blue/grey/silver quail eggs and I was told I could have this already packaged order ready to ship that someone flaked on them for the same price I was going to purchase 25 eggs originally.  Such a deal I agreed to take the 60 eggs off their hands.

 

 I always say each egg that hatches is a surprise package...in this case I guess it really will be a surprise.
