    These were supposed to be from red tuxedo and black tuxedo eggs. One is white and the other I'm not sure. I'm pretty new with this, Any ideas?

    One is a an A&M the other is a tuxedo. You'll have to wait to see if its going to be tibetan or rosetta. Looks more tibetan to me. All yellow feathers turn white on coturnix.

    You think it will end up having tuxedo markings? I thought it looked too dark, my flash on my phone kind of brightened him up. I'll be happy if its a tux though! I'm keeping these two either way it turns outs, they're special...lol

    Thats a tux, without a doubt. If you're lucky you'll have one male one female there. You can cross a tux back against a white bird and add some more white to the tux offspring, at least to a certain extent.
