I know I am asking about morphs a lot lately... But is this a Silver Tuxedo?

It started off looking like an ordinary white king quail chick just like it's older sibling who is all white, but as time went on, I noticed darker, blue-silver feathers showing up on it's back. It looks almost seagull like. :p So yeah... Is this a Silver-white tux?

The one with the yellow head above the silver (who turned out to be a cinnamon) and blue-faced chick, is it when it was younger. And again, I am thinking their parents have been hit by a radioactive rainbow with all these crazy colours popping out of their eggs! :lau

I'd say silver, yes. Some of its back feathers seem strangely dark though. Could be something else in there as well, causing that effect. Or they might clear up as it gets older.

I suspect it may be a male, which might explain the darker feathers on some parts like near the tail, but am unsure on the dark reddish feathers on the back and head. Could be a bit of cinnamon expressing itself as the parents do carry the gene.
