Tennessee red and mahogany bobwhite...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
While bored on eBay looking at quail eggs the other day I came across a guy who claimed to be selling "mahogany" bobwhite quail eggs. Ever sense that auction ended I haven't seen anybody selling "mahogany" bobwhite eggs. Are mahogany and the Tennessee red color mutations in bobwhite the same mutation just different names or is there actually a mutation called mahogany?

Thanks
Luke

They're Tennessee Reds that have been VERY selectively bred by a guy for many years. To say they're the same is almost undermining (not intentionally) to the work put forth and beauty of these birds. Genotype is the same, but phenotype is not. Not many people can do what this guy has done with a single mutation...a meticulous breeding program, no doubt.
