After looking for pictures that I may save to my computer for future reference of recognizing color I have come to the conclusion that something must be done. This has inspired me to photoshop up a basic "Standard" for the quail to be made available for BYC[Quail]. I know there are like a gagillion names for these bird's colors. Honestly though, whats with all the names?? Lol, so this is where I ask for y'alls help . It seems like a lot of the color/variety info is all word-of-mouth and nothing is "on the books." I think it would be nice if we had an outline of the basic colors, then the varieties within those colors, yano, like how the Pharaoh color is WAY similar to the Fawn and possibly just a mutation/dilution of the brown. After looking at various websites and these boards I have come up with these colors: British Range - aka Rosetta Dark British Range - aka Tibetans Cinnamon Range - aka Red Golden. Is this just a variety within the larger British Range coloration? Red Tibetan - aka Rosetta. These to me look like a redder [Dark] British Range. In this case, would they be closer to Dark Range or British Range? Is there a commonly recognized name for this color? English [Whites] Fawn - which to me looks to just be a mutation of brown making it look lighter. I have also seen this referred to as "Blonde." Brown - aka Pharaoh/Wild/XLD, which BTW: what is the "standard" name for this color? Tuxedo - commonly it seems that more of the common Tuxedos are pied British Ranges, possibly the Dark variety. Other tuxedo varieties I have come upon include the Manchurian (gold) and Red (not if this red comes from ). Red - not sure of what this color looks like, too many look like variations. Silver - never seen one of these so far. I classify the following as their own breed within the specie seeing as how they were bred in order to attain a new physical standard outside simply color variety: A&M [White] Jumbo [Brown] PLEASE HELP!! My hope is that this post will serve as a sort of make-shift Standard of Perfection for the Coturnix. As I type this out I am also organizing photos in Photoshop which I hope to have posted so it may be reviewed. I will be sure to incorporate a sort of key on the image so people may make specific comments if a bird is mislabeled, and so forth. Maybe something like the "Manchurian Variety" and each picture be labeled 1-however many there are in that said variety.
