    It's technically a "GOLDEN" on my farm, but that's just me.

    Great pics! It's amazing you got 2 off before she evacuated her bowels or threw up!

    There is this spot on my back...I can't reach it with my hands or feet, but there is probably quail poop back there. I don't know how the heck it gets back there, but it does!

    That they do! LOL!

    We've always refereed to them as presents too.

    Beautiful bird!
    I love the last photo too!
    I know my Coturnix can be little hams. Too bad the button don't sit still like they do. LOL!
