    This is a regular XLD with white barring. Can't wait to see how it grows out.

    Interesting. I would love to see if it keeps that color when it grows up. And if it will pass to the next generation.

    I have a male golden that has white primary feathers. Very unexpected. I bought them as week olds. Even though he is a bit smaller than his siblings. Hes a keeper. Im going to pair him up with the largest females.

    I have hatched from this same bunch of mixed quail several times now and never had this happen. I actually hadn't really noticed it until yesterday when I saw that the feathers were actually white.

    I would breed it back to a parent or a cousin. Maybe the color would pop back up. And maybe you might have accidentally created a new color morph.

    I have no idea who a parent or cousin would be. I have 3 pens of mixed quail.
