    I just hatched out about 18 coturnix. I got some that are like a dark cinnamon color. If I post pictures of them and the pics reflect the colors they are, can y'all tell me what colors they are?

    They are mixes. I'm sure of that because I have a speckled Texas A&M, really cute mix of colors.

    Also how will these change colors as they age? Or will they? I love this color that I call a dark cinnamon and I am hoping that it stays. I have 2 or 3 in that shade, one looks like it has kohl eyeliner (think Captain Jack Sparrow) and another has lighter coloring around the eyes.
