    I've seen silver ones at the local auction here, you may have to go find some of those. They are very pretty quail.

    Silver Coturnix? They are insanley RARE here in the U.S.A not sure if there are even any. Me and a well known breeder were trying to think how to create them. IF you see some grab them and send them my way haha
