What color is this coturnix quail?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

This is him as a baby, he looked like a italian/golden speckled but the dark stripes were replaced by a cinnamon looking color

 

And this is him now, his speckles are a rusty/cinnamon color. He came in a batch of eggs that were supposed to be cinnamon range.

 

Thanks

He's a golden italian, it's easy to breed the black spotting out of golden roos with a little line breeding.

Thanks for the reply, the eggs I ordered were supposed to be all cinnamon or roux but only 3 hatched and one was white, one was a weird cinnamon looking color and then there was the striped one.

 

Oh yeah and would you consider this color cinnamon or something else?
