    I need some help from you more experienced folks in confirming the colors on my Coturnix quail.
    1. I believe this one is a Tibetin.

    2. Not sure if this is a Dilute/Fawn or Cinnamon.

    3. This is supposed to be an Italian.

    4. Playing with the Cot calculator it say if you mix a speckled gold (Italian?) with a Cinnamon you get a Gold Speckled Cinnamon. Is this one?

    A couple of those look very familiar! I picked up 12 that I'm trying to figure out and I think they're mixed. Your top two pictures look like a few of mine that I suspect are a cross between the reds and a Tibetan . I wonder if the light ones aren't what can happen if you mix a traditional type with an A and M type.... trying to guess is half the fun.....still don't know what my dog is either! Good Luck!

    That's an interesting thought. The person I got them from did have A&Ms so it is possible.

    I'm going to try to get pictures of mine today...it's an odd odd assortment! The cool thing is that each one is different...

    I like having different colors too. I have many wild type as well. I like the unique ones but unfortunatly many are turning out to be males. I have only one Tibetin and its a boy so he will probably be culled.

    That first one does look very similar to mine that I think is a Tibetin. No idea what the second ones are but they are lovely. That red and gold combo is beautiful. I believe the third ones are A&Ms. Forth would be a tuxedo but I don't know what the top color is.

    The color on Artemis didn't photograph well....it's like an almost black base with a lace top red overlay...that one is a favorite! Do your Tibetan's have the little Hitler mustache? It didn't look like it. I seem to have several with a bit of white....that A and M blood coming through I guess.......
