Meet a very unique bird from my last hatch:

He has blue-ish eyes and a tuft of feathers on his head:

He even had the head fluff as a hatchling!

Now for questions: Do you think if I were to breed him, that his offspring might have tiny feather tufts on their heads or blue eyes? Do you think he is a blue-eyed quail?

He's so pretty!!!!!! :love I think you should try breeding him! I have no idea what that would result in, but it'd be pretty interesting!

There are definitely blue eyed quail. I have a couple. They're both celadon layers too.

What a cute quail! :love

I haven't had a quail with a tuft on top of their head, but I have a few with little 'beards' on their chins.
