What "color" are these coturnix

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got two coturnix I hatched myself but these two are giving me problems deciding what "color" they are

First one:



The one above came from eggs that were either tib or tuxedo/tib compared to the other hatch mates he doesn't have the same color as the other tib's he's more zig zag pattern and doesn't have the dark chocolate color.

Second one:



Now this one has that patch of white on the chest of a tuxedo bird but it's a lot lighter color than the others. There's all so a chance this bird was one of the "schofield silver/lavender" line the guy had bout 10 different varieties listed that was randomly picked from"

Any ideas on what "color" these are considered?

Thank you!
Luke

I am thinking the top one is rosetta, bottom is silver probably also over rosetta..penciling on the feathers.

Coturnix come in silver?? How do you breed for that or is it just a random mutation?
