    Can anyone tell me what color this button quail is? You can’t really tell from this pic but the feathers that are coming in on the wings are white with a stripe of caramel going through the center of each feather. Thanks.

    Hard to tell under the red light looks rather like a cinnamon

    That's what I was thinking too, a cinnamon. What color was it as a new chick? That would help. [​IMG]

    Ok here’s the same chick in better light. As a chick it was mostly yellow and now its getting white feathers with a caramel/butterscotch color on each white feather. I could very well be wrong but it seems like it has way too much white on it when I compare it to pics of other cinnamon buttons.

    I think you will find that it will out grow that white and be a very striking female cinnamon hen
