    I agree VERY pretty! I need to look closer at one of my birds. I may already have myself a ginger, but she may have been dusty lol !ihope she isnt dusty because that'd be so neat to already have one! I hatched her though so Im sure i would have been able to tell as a chick if she was different so sadly i thikn its just dust *pouts* LOL!

    Your birds are a little darker than the Classic Fawn/Ginger...maybe they have a little more brown in them. But still good looking birds! I have a whole hatch of them due in a couple weeks.

    Lisa here are the 2 lighter ones I hatched from your eggs!! Pardon the poop. Of course they have to poop when I put them on something so you can see them. 2 on the left are the lighter one on the right is a regular. They didn't photograph well but they are lighter. [​IMG]
    The second picture the one on the right is lighter the left is a regular.

    Awww... look at those little cuties! Yes, I can see that they are lighter. They are very pretty little ones! They are such a calm natured quail, you will like them as adults. You will also like all the eggs they will give you. Pickle them, they are wonderful. Thanks for showing us pics!

  10. Quote:They are so pretty! And I love, in the first picture, how they're on a prefold diaper! [​IMG] VERY appropriate for what they do on it... [​IMG]
