I've had painted quail for about a year now, no white or pied. I've probably had 10 generations hatch since, most looked just like the parents. About 2 months ago I had 2 hatch that were blackfaced, pale colour and speckled. That was neat. Maybe a week after that I had two hatch that are kinda pale gray/silver/powder blue. I decided to keep those 2 together and let them breed. She lays pale brown/redish eggs with blue or green rings, really pretty. What has me questioning things, two of her eggs hatched into little yellow fuzzy babies, and now they're covered with white feathers. Does anybody know if that's typical, or do the powder blue birds start out white and change colour later? I haven't seen much about chinese quail breeding and genetics. Thanks.
