    I have a golden bibbed silver male button quail that I hatched out from my own eggs. I'm not sure what pair of mine produced him though. Anyone familiar with the genetics behind this? I'm trying to figure out what colour of female to mate him with to produce more like him.

    The golden bib usually comes from cinnamon or in the pearl genetics. I have some silvers that have a golden bib. You can put a cinnamon with him which will create splits or cinnamon red breasted which will create ivory ( that will be pretty with the bib as well). It's kind of a flaw we have with buttons. little colors on the plummage appears at times [​IMG]

    Can you send me some pics of your golden bibs?

    How works your breed?
