    herm hard to say. Looks kind of "different" but that picture shows very little.

    I'd say it does look a little different, however i've been suprised before to find they're just a lighter or darker version of what you'd already get. I wouldnt be suprised if it's just a lighter Golden. However...again dunno that's not a great picture...the lighting could be off or anything hehe im no help! LOL!

    if i were you i'd ask on coturnix corner on the breeding section they help me out A LOT! LOL!

    Like i just learned yesterday from them that rosettas (whom i worried at one point were hybrids because stupid strombergs site i hate said they are---they're not btw), are nothing more than a redder tinted Tibetan, I've had these so called "rosettas" and didn't know it [​IMG]

    I am very untrustworthy of ebay sellers now because of what i have learned so i always ask the UK breeders first hehe!!!

    Heres my famed "Rosettaaaaa"

    you can tell by the eBay's quail head markings that its just a pale gold (manchurian/Italian) coturnix quail .... they won't breed true [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks for that info Suz I was really curious about that bird. [​IMG] Ebay and other sellers selling coturnix make me wanna pull my hair out how they try to pull people in with NEW names so it's nice to hear that it IS indeed just a golden. [​IMG]
