    I've been breeding quail for 10 years now and I was watching them a couple months ago, and saw my California Quail male mate with a Mountain quail female. I separated the two and incubated their eggs and 1 out of 25 eggs HATCHED!!!! Finally 8 weeks have passed and the hybrid quail has been laying for a week now. Here's today's egg... They're always brown!!!! [​IMG]

    Did you try to hatch the egg?
    Do you have a pic of the hen that laid it?

    I've had Bobwhite and Blue quail cross and hatched but they didn't make it past a few days. Hope yours do!!! Would love to see some pic's of the offspring.
