Hey guys! This is my first foray into birds of any sort. My friend picked these up for me as she knew I was really wanting button quail, and I just brought them home two days ago. I have been researcing for a while about their care and am going to keep reading things on this forum becasue I'm totaly smitten with these guys and want to make sure I'm caring for them properly. :D
According to their hatch date, they are exactly 8 weeks old today, and I wanted to get them paired out. I was told I have two males and two females, but I would like second opinions. I also would like to know what colors I have. Also, are there any good sites for quail genetics that I should check out? Thanks in advance for any responses. :)
1. Supposed male, my guess would be a blue faced something or other?
2. Supposed female and my current favorite, my guess is cinnamon something?
3. Also a supposed female... I think she is a splashed of some sort, her splashes are that gray color on the back of her neck.
4. Supposed male... not real sure about him. I almost want to say Darth Vader but I'm not sure how unusual that color is, so I'm sure it's something else.
And last question, how would you pair these guys?
