    So I hatched out 15 little button quail the other day and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on colors.

    I also have a pic of one of my hens and was wondering about her color too.

    Thanks, John

    The hen is a Cinnamon

    Didn't you ask Jodi first?? [​IMG] You know who I am [​IMG]

    Ok all the way in the back, wild, wild, wild, wild, silver/white/pied (the yellow ones are the surprise ones)--> Wild is Chinese Blue Breasted (they can get red breasts, those are normal red breasteds)
    Second row butt, is that a really dark chick or a brown with stripes? If really dark, blue face, if brown with stripes, then wild, all the way in the end wild
    Third row, pied and cinnamon
    second to all the way in the front (these babies are practicing for cheerleading or something?) Looks like cinnamon blue face? the one all the way in the front cinnamon.

    That was for the first picture

    I have not asked Jodi yet I thought about trying to post on the button forum but new how to post here better.

    Maybe I will just send her a pic. And yes I do know who you are in both areas love your website and just got my eggs from you today.

    Lots to learn and thank you for your help.

    I thought I had a lot of wilds and Jodi did say the all yellow ones and do some fun things looking forward to seeing what comes out.
