    † Welcome to the Quail Breeders Club †
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Discuss Quail Breeds, Genetics, Breeding, Housing, Feeding, Housing, and anything Quail!
    I'm trying to improve my Texas A&M's & Wisconsin Jumbo Bobwhites. My goal it to make them to lay more eggs, have them be meatier, and of course calmer.

    Thank you †

  5. OOOOH! Can I join the club? I have quail and BOY do they breed. Even the males kept in the bachelors quarters for a while get into the breeding thing in the spring. Does my small covey qualify for the BREEDERS club?

    For heaven's sake.

    Can some of you whose posts have been removed be any more rude to an enthusiastic member??????

    I have cleaned this thread up and warnings have been issued.

    No one is forcing anyone to post here.

    If you don't want to participate then move along.

    Anyone can start a discussion on anything that follows BYC rules.

    I hope I am crystal clear on this.

    The Coturnix are my specialty. I heart them to death. I am working on size and trying to keep their colors intact.

    Mibotsu posted one of my projects not long ago on my Golden Tuxedo project. The post to that thread is : https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=608333
    There
    is a lethal gene involved in the line. I am using Texas A and Ms and either Manchurian Golds or Italians. I mixed a M. Gold to the Italian and then Crossed the offspring to a Jumbo Brown to get the right size gene involved in there. Because M. Golds carry the lethal gene, it will be present in the tuxedo as well, or the pandas (which is the stage I am at at this point).

    So the color genes involved so far is: Y, E, Y^F

    Y being Yellow
    E being extended brown
    and Y^F being fawn

    and we can't forget recessive white wh
