    Hi nice quail. I am not sure of the mutations that happen with corturnix, so not sure how much help I can be, I just got a full white chick from two normal buttons. I posted about it and someone told me that it could be a recessive gene that by a miracle of nature became dominant in that chick. All of its sisters and brothers are normal like mother and father. This may be what has happened in your case too.

    the first bird is a sandy brown. i have parrots and in their mutations, we would call that a cinnamon. it would also be known as a pied in parrots, thats why i was guessing the tuxedo? i have no idea really, totally new to the mutation side of game birds hahaha.
