I have 5, 4 week old silver quail. They are wild type pattern. So if I'm understanding correctly they would be SI/si for the silver gene? I've read somewhere they need to be male SI/SI bred to female SI/si to get proper silvers. Is this correct or can I breed my heterozygous quail together and get a mix and a few SI/SI? Is there problems with viability with the silver gene?
