    Earley this year I purchased what was supposed to be rosetta quail. They have been laying good and I have hatched a bunch of eggs.

    But I am getting at least 6 different types of (colors) of chicks.
    I have gotten tuxedos, white like a&ms,chocolate,rosetta,pure black, and a kind of tan mottled. My rosetta male is bigger than my meat makers quail.

    Do rosettas breed pure??
    Are rosettas a mutt blend?

    I'm enjoying all the colors just puzzling

    Yes I will try to get some pics tonight.

    The adults will be tricky to catch. The babies will be easier
