    I think they can be either depending on the lines bred. That being said I only have one tux and she's normal sized.

    Tuxedo coturnix are from the Rosetta pattern, so they will not be anything in the "JUMBO" weight class.

    They will be a very "NORMAL" size, however very pretty birds. Jumbo birds come from the "WILD" pattern birds. They can even be white as long as they are from the wild pattern birds.

    It all depends on how they were bred. There are many varieties within the tuxes: the ranges (tibetan, Rosetta), red range, scarlett, gold, even roux dilute...

    It all comes down to the breeder they came from. some people work to breed all their colors to jumbo size range (after all jumbo is a weight category that all), so it depends on if it was bred to that standard, or just for looks

    Well the guy accidentally gave me an extra male... Is this going to pose a problem have 2 males in the pen w/ 2 females?

    You may have some balder hens. I have more than one male in my breeding pens but more girls. There shouldn't be a huge problem if they were raised together.
