    Well my title says it all, what will I get with a Red Headed Golden Coturnix Male over Silver Range/Silver Tux Coturnix Hens?
    Any Colour gurus out there who could give me an idea on the outcome?
    Got a couple eggs from that cross in the bator and am really excited to see what I get. I have the same male with a wildtype silver hen as well which I predict will give me at least wild type, wild type silver and something odd on the side probably.

    Also how does egg colour pass on in coturnix? I have a hen that lays a solid robins blue egg and I would like to breed more of those.

    Thanks,
    Anna

    Red headed Golden Coturnix is merely our Italian males...they have a darker head then the body is more gold.

    You will get a lot of splits with your mixture.

    Yes, we call our Italians Red Heads up here. At least thats all I ever seen them labeled as.
    Although its become hard to get really nice redheads as of late.

    I will post pics of my breeding stock once I get them switched to different pens and cleaned out a bit.

    Here are some pics of my 2 silver Pens.

    This is pen has a pair of Silver Ranges with a Wild type hen and a Range hen. The Silver range hen is the males fave so had to cover her in stop-pick poor thing, she also is the one who lays the robins blue egg.

    These are the hens in with my Red Head male, a wild type silver, a silver range and a silver tux.
