    Brilliant photos!!! There are so many types (and different mixtures of those types), I don't know how you remember them all [​IMG] This really needs to be made into a sticky as well to go with the thread on Coturnix colours. Very useful to use as a reference guide!! Thanks for posting this Quail Lady [​IMG]

    HI Quaillady,
    Your photos are amazing and the time you put into sharing them so others can learn, is very much appreciated! [​IMG]
    I have one little button at the moment and will be ordering eggs this week and am anxious to learn the colors and all I can about these little beauties!
    Thank you so much for your time and help![​IMG]

    I was just wondering, is the blue breasted the normal, wild type colour? [​IMG]

    And I am the one that bothered everyone the last few days with my little expected babies..now, I will probably be buggy when they get older, to see what color is what, and ask if the sex can be told. Still wondering about that..how long before you can tell the sex.
    Love the photos..will book mark this so maybe I won't be too buggy and can figure a couple out by looking at your photos! [​IMG]

    I think we all worry a little about being "buggy" when it comes to color.
    There's so many, and even looking at this thread I have ???'s. I'll be back later with a list. [​IMG]

    I just ordered an incubator last night and will order eggs when it's here, and am so excited!
    I know i'll be back with color questions. [​IMG]
    Were all learning here and it will take awhile. Such beautiful sweet little birds though!
