He's a new pal of mine from over where the Coturnix are MUCH more colorful to say the least.
I can deffiantly say he's going to be an asset to all of us on here, being as he's had, what'd you say.... 30 years experience with birds? yes yes... something like that!
ANYWHOOOOO be sure to give him a welcome!

Hi,

Well thank you for your warm welcome Monarc.

A bit about myself, I've worked within the poultry industry for over 30 years, obtained a HNC in poultry husbandry At the West of Scotland Collage, Scotland, UK.
I've dabbled with quail a number of years now, mainly trying to produce new colours, I haven't as yet, but you never know.

Late last season, I hatched out two red eyed whites, A white bird with cinnamon patches but with red eyes. These turn out a pair and produced 4 fertile eggs before a rat killed the hen.
Result was two more red eyed whites. These two birds are with Cinnamons and should start laying soon.

I hope to get some photo's posted with the names we call them in England for comparsion, with some colours you may have not seen before

Hi! I'm not sure if I'm a freak... more of a nut, hmmm, well maybe a superfreak al-la James Brown, hmmmm I defy classification.


Anyways, looking forward to seeing you around.
