    I have 30 quail and 27 of them are the standard color. 1 is a Tibetan. The other two look kinda like golden but they aren't. They are a lighter color then the standards and all the markings that are dark brown and black on the standards are a light gray / blue on these two. Any ideas. I can't find anything online that looks like them.....

    Does anyone know? lol. I agree they are pretty. They look like a dilute version of the standard color to me.
