    We've recently acquired some new quail from a couple of different breeders. They are Coturnix, but not sure which color type. They are dark brown all over their bodies with some lighter highlights on their backs. Thinking Tibetan, maybe, or some kind of cross?

    Agree Tibetan, the lighter brown ones are pharoahs otherwise known as japanese, the white ones are texas a&m, the brown and white ones are tuxedo, the gold ones are manchurian.
