    I'm new to quail and need your help. I have no idea what colors I have. Please disregard the poop. Cage cleaning day is fun. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hello! Where did the eggs/breeding stock come from? Picture one looks like a true cinnamon, picture 2 looks lavender, three looks silver, 4 and five look tibetan/tuxedo.

    I got them from a guy locally. He said they're imported but I'm not sure if they are or not. I'm really digging the cinnamon

    Imported from another breeder, yes. Coturnix aren't even a wild bird, they are domestically bred. Also importing birds costs a good amount of money, a whole lot of paperwork, and a 30 day quarantine period at a quarantine station is required. The reason I ask is because I know a breeder who developed a cinnamon mutation, and I wonder if it is from that bloodline. Can you give his name?

    Here's a new one. It looks like a Pharoah but instead of the usual browns, cinnamon, and creams, it's black, gray, and white. Anyou ideas? I have 3 of them.

    That looks like a pharoh variation. It is really pretty. Are they tame? If so can you get some more pictures of this one?
