    Is there any difference between the golden coturnix with red markings on their face and the black marked faces as far as when you breed them and the mutations you end up with?

    The black faced ones are the 'normal' goldens, the maroon marked ones are fawn goldens. I'm not sure how it works for sure, but the first goldens I had were a fawn male and a normal female....all male chicks were fawn, females were not. But I have had some females that were fawn as well, so it's not 100% sex-linked.
