    I decided to rush outside in the cold and snap some pictures of my sleeping quail...I need a little help w/ some colors..never figured out a few of'em. [​IMG]

    This is Angela, her mother is a Pied and her father is a Black Tuxedo. Is she a Pied or a Black Tux?

    This is Sleepy ( fits huh [​IMG] ), some thought she was a Silver ..but she turned out a white button. Any ideas on gender?

    What color is my pretty Freda ( Front ), Audrey ( Behind Freda ), and the male in the far back w/ the grey head? [​IMG]

    In case you ask why I have more then a pair in each cage..it's because I don't have anymore cages, and until I do they have to stay together. [​IMG]

    Your quails are beautiful. I don't know anything about the colors. I wish I could have helped.

    Your Frieda is a cinnamon pearl, the one behind her looks like a cinn blue face. Can't see her too well. To answer you tuxedo question. Tuxedo isn't a mutation on it's own, it's just pied. So it would be tuxedo pied. The offspring looks like tuxedo pied.

    Fluffy puffy... Not a good idea to have the pairs in a colony setting.

    justbugged - Thanks. [​IMG]

    Little_Bigfoot - Yes, she is a female.


    quailladyoffortmyers - Thank you much, I know it isn't a good idea. I just don't have anymore cages at the moment.


    Robo - all those are. They have heaters and heat lamps at night. They're in a secure "Quail House". I only have 1 pair inside.

    BobwhiteQuailLover - Thanks


    Sad updated, Sleepy passed sometime last night.
