    Hello, I have just joined up as I need some advice. I have just hatched quail and all 4 that have hatched so far are albino. I have never seen or heard of this before, does anyone have any experience of this and are there health defects associated?

    Any advice welcomed!!

    Thanks

    Can we see a picture or two? I would love to see some "Albino" quail. Also they might just be pure white A&Ms

    Four in any size batch seems to be very unlikely. Is it possible you had some recessive white ones? Are their eyes red/pink?

    Or the English White. We had one member who had an Albino chick. I'm at work, and the photo is blocked by our internet police.
