I read that scientists actaully AI a quail to a chicken....and produced a quail chicken! NO pictures to show what this looked like either though i'd like to see.


I have 2 hen Button quails in with a batch of Coturnix quails, am sneakily hoping they reproduce naturally and I get some BQ/Coturnix hybrids. Hoping, to makea hybrid that's calmer like the Coturnix, yet more colorful like the BQs.

so.....if i have a male white pheasant....are my hens in danger of being mated with? I have 2 banty hens, who hang close with my banty roo, an 2 standard hens (1 jersey giant and 1 wyandotte) who the roo does not seem to care for at this time (the standards are young).

He may breed with them he may not . I think its a luck of the draw .

The only case i ever heard of with a pheasant mateing a chicken is on feathersite and that pheasant was rasied by a hen frm a chick so maybe he thought he was a chicken and thats why he bred

Ya never know though
