    Welcome to the forum. I'm fairly new here myself but also have lots of other animals and turkey eggs in my bator right now too but I have their parents. I'm in North East KY but drive thru western Ky at least a couple times a year on my way to visit family in Illinois and Iowa.

    Also I just got started with Coturnix quail this year but have some other kinds as well. Would love to see pics of these blond ones u were describing. This forum is pretty user friendly and i think u will find it fairly easy to post pics to this thread if u wouldn't mind sharing. We r all about new colors and mutations on here.

    Just a suggestion. U could text(send) the pics from your phone to your email address copy and save them to your computer from there and then post them. I had to do this once after a friends pup chewed up my usb cable for my phone. A friend of mine suggested this trick as they also did it when they lost the usb cord to an old digital camera they had.[​IMG]
