    Quote:For coturnix, there are no "NORMAL" colors. Different colors pop up all the time. If you are a purist, then Wild pattern browns are the norm.
    There are 2 basic patterns, the wild pattern, and Rosetta, Range, or what ever you call it pattern. Wilds can be more easily color sexed, the Rosetta pattern defies color sexing....in most cases. You also have whites....they are non-color sex able no matter the pattern they sprang from.

    Rosetta is a type of Range, the grouping of that variety would be Range (dark range, british range, etc.)

    Thanks for the clarification Shelly! No matter what they are called, I consider them non-color sex-able, one of the 2 different patterns....one color sex-able, the other not.

    I still think wild pattern browns are the best bet for novice people to raise...as far as easy color sexing is concerned. Just my opinion [​IMG]

    The Range varieties are the ones that sell the best around here. Luckily, most people don't care what sex they are [​IMG]
