    Be patient with me I haven't had colored quail before. I have only dealt with the wild type and I am still learning the names for the colors. After some research I was wanting to see if I passed the test and named all the colors right.....


    I was told by the breeder that this was Italian. Is this the same as a Golden???

    The first is a golden, I've not heard them called italians, but there are so many different names for them!

    I'm not familiar with the correct 'range' names, but I'll give you what I know.

    The second one is a rosetta tuxedo, the 3rd is a dark tibetan tuxedo, and the last is a dark tibetan.

    I'm not for 100% sure on #2, since it is different from both #1 and #3, so maybe someone else who knows more than me will come along to help [​IMG]

    #1 could be the golden range, I've not seen many of those, which would make #2 a regular rosetta, but like I said, I'm not sure. [​IMG]
