    Coturnix coloration

    They are three weeks old now! Any idea on colors yet? And if not how old do they have to be, I'm super curious what I have 🥰 This is my first hatch and I was not expecting anything other than a 'normal brown' from these eggs that I picked up at a reptile expo! I know I'm going to have to vent...

    Hybridising Chinese Painted Quail and Japanese Quail

    For a while now I have had two Chinese painted (CP) quail (assumed a pair) living with my Japanese Coturnix (JC) hens. Surprisingly, the CP roo has not once mated with his CP hen. Instead, he took a fancy to my JC hens. At first it was a futile attempt, he would climb on their necks and sit...

    What Colour is my Coturnix Quail?

    Hi all back once again. this is my third (and HOPEFULLY final) post regarding Cookie, one of my stunted quail. He’s pretty much gotten all of his plumage sans for a few around his eyes, but I’m hoping that’s finally enough to determine just what exactly he is. Diluted pharaoh, german pastel...

    Foul Smell?

    Just wondering as a first time quail owner what’s the norm regarding quail smell? I know it’s important to clean frequently because they are known to smell, but I somewhat assumed it’d be from the faecal matter build up, like in chickens and ducks. My quail chicks are starting to develop their...
