    Can i get some pics posted of all the different Button Quail colours you guys have?
    I'd really be interested to see the variety of colours available, chicks or adults, male or female..
    And it doesnt matter if somebody posts the same colour as you have before you do, id still like to see them..
    Thanks in advance,
    Sonja

    I've got many many more mutations but the pictures are not right here. Is there a particular mutation you are wanting pictures of?

    Hi Sonja,
    We need more mutations here in Australia. Its not fair that we have a less selection. I love different colours in all my birds.
    Its the variety of life.

    Thanks quailbrain!
    There isnt any particular mutation im looking for, i would just really like to see, well, All Of Them [​IMG] If theres a picture of it, i wanna see it!
    As Martha said we have a very limited variety of colours here in Australia compared to everywhere else, which sucks big time [​IMG]
    I'd luv to get one of those blue face colours [​IMG] they look so cool!

    I've got a ton of pics on my page, though they are no where near as good as quailbrain's pics! I have a lot of cinnamon blueface, that is the most dominant color in my birds. But I do get quite a few redbreasted mutations from my birds as well.

    ETA: I believe the male in the first pic is a golden redbreast, not just a redbreast. A redbreasted male should have a white bib, golden redbreasteds do not. Had me thinking hard on that one, cause I have a redbreast male that does not have a head like that! [​IMG]

    Quote:That first one I've seen called so many things.... Golden Red-breasted- Darth vader - Blue faced red-breasted.... I can't wait for the day the colors are all one name!!! I have pretty much given up on deciding what to call it cause each place I post a name some calls it something different.

    Was that one of Susan's originals? Were you able to breed the males in that color variant? Do you still have him in your breeding program?

    After the whites, I could be wrong on color, except for the cinnies.
