    I was thinking about trying quail eggs once my Incubator finally gets emptied in lil over a week from now. Last time I was at our auction I remember seeing this BEAUTIFUL blue/gray quail, It was plain colored like the tex a&m's no other spots or anything, just blue/gray, more blue though. about the size of a&m's. anyone know the name of them? Pics please? [​IMG]

    or if anyone can even give me a list of quail names that start with S or P I know id recognize the name of them.

    Sounds like it could be:

    California Valley Quail
    Gambel's Quail
    Blue Scale Quail

    Did it have a top cap?

    It would be hard to find eggs for these right now.

    Could be a female valley, gambel or blue scale. They are not very colorful, just gray.

    Quote:[​IMG] No no no
    its not a gambel blue scale or vally. its COMPLETLY blue, No black or white markings under the chin, No hat looking thing, Nothing, No other markings whatsoever and its blue/gray/blue silver color I dont mean like blue with gray markings or anything, I mean I dont know if you would classify it AS that color, like between a mix of blue/silver

    and I've already looked and I do not believe it was a button either

    The light colored one at the back is what it looked like but maybe a tiny bit darker in color and once again I know it started with either a S or P
