    Ok, I have read some of the genetics threads here and I want to be sure I am understanding them correctly.

    I have Tibetan and Tux Coturnix. (1 brown/wild color who appears to be a boy and so will probably be the first eaten.)

    If I want more Tux, I have to breed Tux to Tux OR Tibetan to A&M/White, is this correct? (I have no A&M or white at this time. I hear they are crazy.)

    If I want more Tibetan coloration, I breed Tibetan to Tibetan only? Or if I breed Tux to Tibetan I will also get Tibetan because it is dominant? Or does that result in a mix? This one is where I am more unsure.

    Thank you

    So the only way to keep my Tibetan coloration is TibetanXTibetan...I better hope that I get at least 1 male and 1 female then!
