    Were they supposed to have browns, or were they just goldens? The reason I ask is that I also have some of ugly ducky's quail, I got the jumbo goldens only. However, I have 4 or 5 brown chicks in there as well [​IMG] I did have a few of my own birds' eggs set, just enough to fill up the turner rack. I have a rosetta tuxedo and an english white, and I know those are from my birds! [​IMG] Just wondering if you got the brown and golden assortment, or if you got browns from the golden eggs [​IMG]

    I don't think brown from golden/golden breeding is possible, but I could be wrong [​IMG]

    Did you find that the tibetan chicks are quite dark in color overall?

    Tibetans should be almost black when they hatch. The one rosetta tux I have looks almost like a brown, but it has quite a bit of yellow on its face and body, and is a bit 'redder' than the browns are.
