    Is it common to get lightly speckled greenish blue egg from a coturnix quail

    Ok thankyou! I got 8 eggs in the last 2 days and today 2 of the three I got were almost solid blue/green with tiny little brown spots. Do they just come up every once and a while or will the same birds lay them every time?
