You read that right. Got a chick from the kindergarden class, supposed to be a quail from another classes hatch. This little chick ended up in their room after the guy came and picked up the chicks a few days later. (This class hatched some of my Big Browns and the new Golds). So now this chick is about 4 weeks old and has about a 2 inch + tail. Its not a Coturnix for sure. Darker brown on one side of feather than the other. Feather tip ends in a White point. The chick did look like a Coturnix when I got it from the class, but not for long. I know a picture is worth a thousand words. I will get some batteries and try to take a few pics. (PSs. for those of you that got emails from me, that I didn't send, sorry but out of my control and you are no longer in my contact list- I dumped it). edited to ad (that means I don't have anyones email address anymore, too though). edited to add pics. Yes, the tail is bluish grey. My seed store guy says, no possible way it could be one of his Peacocks as it was to small. He thought he was passing me a quail, as he had been told. Ok Bird Guru's, what is it? I have had it by itself in a small cage and just now moved it to a larger cage. VERY FLIGHTY, hence the frazeled tail. Still needs warmth though, as back is not completely feathered. Probably hatched May 23rd as they dropped it off on May 27th, last day of school. Just starting to show feather development at that time. (Teachers now know to grind all quail feed - GBF - for any quail babies they hatch). Is it some kind of quail or did one of those Kindergarteners go outside and bring a wild baby bird back to the school room?
