    Hi everyone, I'm new to BYC. I live in New Zealand currently own 3 adult quail and their 3 tiny babies which hatched on the 11/9 who all live on the bottom of my budgies aviary

    I am wanting to check on the mutations of them as sometimes I see pics and it makes me wonder if I do have it right?!?

    I believe you are right in your guesses. The chicks look silver as well. Dad might be silver red breasted - the pale rusty color on his belly extends all the way to his bib, which it usually doesn't. They look like a really nice trio!

    Thanks for that, he is actually really beautiful, I was stoked when I got him... yes I'm thinking the babies are silver too, wasn't sure if they would all be as there was 7 eggs in the nest some of which my cinnamon hen laid, however 2 were infertile and 2 died early on so hers may have been those ones :(
