    Hi everyone, I recently got a new coturnix quail hen for my breeding flock. The breeder said she is a cinnamon, but I'm not really sure what the official mutation is (if there is one). She is the light colored bird in the picture below. Any help would be appreciated![​IMG]

    Is it possible she could be a dilute? Any feedback would be appreciated!

    Maybe a golden?

    It's not a golden or a manchurian, this one just looks like any other brown Coturnix but faded lighter.
