    Hello everyone. I bought coturnix quail eggs 3 weeks ago. They have now hatched and there all nice and fluffy. Question is one of them baring in mind came out of a coturnix quail egg is bright yellow with the browny patches. What is it?

    It's probably an A&M if it is 90% or more yellow with a brown spot on its head or in the middle of it's back. If it has has a yellow underside and yellow around the face with dark brown everywhere else it's probably a tuxedo. Post a picture if you still arent sure.

    Any yellow feathers it has will turn white when it matures.
