    also, just a side DO NOT have"mixed breeds".. you have MIXED COLORS.Coturnix is the Species/breed and tuxedo is 1 color, "a&m"...better known as white ,is another color ,and when you say "coturnix" are they brown? because if they are then they're called wild type or brown,a third color.......if you know what you have it's easier to figure out their proper care....
    sure hope you get them straightened out and settled down of luck to you !

    I have a friend that works at a vet's office. When people call their dogs mutt's she says no they are designer dogs. So I call my chickens Designer chickens. LOL
