    This might be a little bit of a dumb question but has anybody ever gotten a yellow coturnix chick with light cinnamon colored stripes on it? i got pretty excited to see it in my brooder tonight :)

    the chick i mean is at bottom right. you can compare it to a normal golden in the middle.

    Update: the striped cinnamon looking bird is still ticking. It has a wonky leg but besides that is fat and healthy. Anybody get one like it before? Im excited to see how it comes out looking :)

    the yellow/cinnamon chick looks like a roux dilute. The yellow chick with the light yellow and dark stripes could be an italian.
     
  4. I got 4 really light ones compared to the other 14 that hatched. My own eggs from the regular Brown's, not sure why?

    Thanks :) we shall see. So far its feathers look beautiful. They seem to have the color of an italian, but rather than black flecks, theyre a reddish color. The flight feathers are a mix of tan and light red (almost salmon)

    No matter what it grows to be, itll be new to me ;)
