    Tell me what color these are please, I'm pretty sure, but not 100% certain. Sorry that the pics are a bit light [​IMG]

    Oh, the last one is the color that I was referring to as 'reddish', though it doesn't look like that now?

    These are the ones that I hatched from Teach97's eggs. Most of the chicks were jumbo browns (at least 40), with these guys and a few A&M. My friend kept the A&M and browns, and I took all the others. I really like those reds, they are very pretty!

    Most of the 'red tibetan' ones seem to have white (yellow) on their faces, some on their breasts. So does that mean they are tuxedoed? Or is it just their baby feathers?

    And what kind of wrench does this throw into the works on my new pens? [​IMG]

    And the goldens are goldens, right? [​IMG]

    Have you worked with these two colors before (red and orange)? The reason I ask is that I am thinking that breeding these to darker birds would result in darker birds? So I would need to keep the different variants of the colors seperated to keep the color right? Or do coturnix not work that way? [​IMG] I hate genetics!! [​IMG]
