This maybe a dumb question but I recently got a shipment of Coturnix quail that were to be tuxedo. Now that they have hatched I'm wondering exactly what I do have. I was expecting dark chicks with yellowish bellies sides (or a variant of that) ... but I've got all sorts of colors. I have some that are a bright reddish color on top with the white markings, I've got some very dark almost black no stripes with white markings, I've got some that have an auburn back with dark lines and the white bellies. I also have a pure white one and a pure black with no stripes or white markings. This is my first Coturnix but not first quail. I unfortunately know nothing about color mutations of the Coturnix although I have raised other quail and wasn't expecting these to be true exactly. I am very surprised at the wide number of variations though. Is this something that always happens with Tuxedo hatching? Did i get sold a mix instead of what I paid for? Does anyone know of a good web site for Coturnix that displays the color variants and them as chicks? Thank you!
