    Now I don't have to feel like I'm bugging Quaillady to death with questions, if it's done as a group! [​IMG]

    My quail just started laying today, and I got three eggs. All my colors are together so far. I heard there is a recessive lethal in one of the colors, is that right?

    [​IMG] Quaillady told me that this roo is an "Autumn Amber" about a month ago when i sent her some pics.
    it's not the best pic. i will see if i have any that are clearer and post later.

    The quail section here on BYC is VERY willing to talk quail...we may not always appreciate what someone has to say( ex: moby quail or quail and chickens topics...LOL) but the folks here are quick to share their experiences and opinions .God bless them all! [​IMG]

    Lethal gene is generally found in some of the golds.

    I have males but Shelleyd2008 has my female [​IMG]
    I did not name the mutation. It was created in Prague with no name and then named in Maine [​IMG]
    Lineage and history is important for every color and line you get whether quail or chicken or ducks.

    I will post photos of the roux diluted italian males (Autumn Ambers) asap
