I have quail eggs under a Silkie. They should hatch anytime now. Will move them to a heated box after hatching along with Silkie eggs that hatch.
Yes, exactly, roux dilute creates scarlet and Egyptian, scarlet is range pattern and Egyptian is wild. It works the same as Rosetta though, scarlets will often have some lacing and barring bleed thru if they have mixed lineage of range and wild.Oh so beautyful birds
Yes, they have the Fee gene, I know it. I got 100% Falb Fees crossing them with a Pharao roo.
I thought this is the Dilute, in Roux Dilute
So Egyptians are Roux. Cool
that this is cleared now
Coturnix quail have greatly lost the urge to brood their own eggs due to so many years of being domesticated. Some do brood, I have several broodies, but I don’t trust them to keep at it or do it right. Sometimes they’ll roll over off the eggs and not notice, sometimes they go to eat and see another egg on the way and sit on it instead.I notice with my 5 common hens that none sit on their eggs. Why is that?
