    That depends on what you want to get. If you put him with other tuxedos you'd get a mix of tuxedo, tibetan, and white chicks. If you put him with tibetan hens you'd get a lot of tuxedo babies (poorly marked mostly) with some tibetan babies. If you put him with white you'd get tuxedo and white chicks.

    Quote:I agree here. Anytime you put an all white/white meat coturnix with any other coturnix, you get 16+OZ white birds. Just kidding.

    I'm with Shelly here, it depends on what you want. Coturnix tux can not be line bread, so it depends on what you are looking to get.

    Put him with any coturnix hen, and you will get fertile eggs. If he's up to the challenge.

    I get a few duds , and I do get some hen pecked roos from time to time, but generally speaking...The boys do quite well!

    Coturnix hens can be quite demanding.

    Sorry for the edit, but had a typo, and that can get me into trouble sometimes.
