    LOL they are awesome! I love raising gamebirds. The Jumbo browns and the golden are from my own breeders....the blacks are going to become my future breeders for my JUMBO BLACK coturnix breeding project. I have more Blacks due tonight/tomorrow!!
    And some bobwhite eggs coming in the mail this week!

    No...the black birds are a not so common color in the U.S. They are British Dark Range birds...with a Double Factor gene. The brown chick hatched from the same eggs but he only has a single factor. They are more commonly known as Tibettans...but most tibettans are brown. Im going to be building up a breeding program for JUMBO BLACKS....so these and the ones hatching today and tomorrow will be the foundation for this program.
    Thanks!
