    I have nine little BQ chicks (Thanks Marie Martin). There are two very yellow chicks, 4 yellowish/greyish chicks, a black one with black legs and 2 black brown striped ones.

    Hi Hoover, I have button quail eggs (first time incubating) that i got from a local breeder, eggs are various colors from a mixed aviary full of all different types of colors of adults. I too had no clue what I had....so I was looking online just to help specifically try and help you find teh answer to your question (and help me in the process for when mine hopefully hatch) and LOOKIE what i found!!!
