    it looks like a Golden Manchurian. Right now, it's too early to tell. You'll have to repost a picture after his feathers grow in.

    Lol, it's about a day older than the pic now, it doesn't have it's feathers yet i.e 2 days old, it must just be a late bloomer [​IMG] I'm going to call it Jasper and will post back when he/she feathers up, which luckily, quail do quickly! see you in 2 weeks!
