    why are peach goldens so inbred they are beautiful and a little bit more money then the other goldens but they are so inbred that the eggs are barely ever fertile and when they are fertile they rarely hatch[​IMG]. Jay in MA

    All I know about peach goldens is that they are pretty and do not breed true.

    Very cute! I just have Italian Coturnix Quail and a lone Valley Quail male. His hen died. Whenever we try gambel's or valley's they always die.
