    We just hatched some quail about a week ago. The eggs were bought at HMart, which is a grocery store. Of the 4 we have three look the same, they have the stripe down the back like the pictures I see of most Coturnix quail chicks. The 4th is quite a bit bigger and doesn't have the stripe down the back. These pictures were the best I could get.

    hi not sure, maybe when it starts to feather up you might be able to see what it's going to be.
    i have some at the moment, not sure what they are going to be like, it's all good fun.

    Thanks! I guess I'll just have to wait and see then. Good luck with yours!

    Looks like perhaps standard coturnix (brown color, which I think is beautiful!) with the stripes and possibly tuxedo for the ones with blond bits? [​IMG]
