    Also what colors will come from them depends on who you got them from.

    If its the lady from Wetaskiwin you will probaby get some silvers ,along with red breasted's ,cinnamons ,whites and splashes.

    Or if they come from Perry ,then any color could come flying out ,as he colony breeds.

    Where is the fourth quail? Button quail are pair birds.
