    Just can't get over how awesome those Blues looks....

    ...for the lower 48 folks, since we can't just go get some from our northern neighbors....what crosses do you think we would have to do to get that color mutation to show? [​IMG]

    Someone is selling these quails and he says that these are platinum quails. Are these really platinum coloured quails or are they another colour?

    That really looks more like a light red color to me, the silvers or blues that were posted earlier from Canada looked to be more of a platinum than that one

    Those reds are nice, thats a colour i don't think we have in canada. I wonder what you get if you cross roux with silvers/blues. maybe thats what creates platinum.
