    I'm wondering who has what in coturnix colors. Please list what colors you have, the sexes of the birds, and how you have the birds penned. This will hopefully help those of us who have a few of a 'rare' color to increase our flock numbers and add some new blood at the same time [​IMG]

    I have the following colors, all currently in the same pen.

    Browns (female only),
    goldens (manchurian gold: male and female),
    rosetta (male and female),
    red golden (female only),
    cinnamon (aka fawn: male and female),
    english whites (male and female),
    rosetta and dark tuxedos (male and female).

    Breeding season is over for this year, I plan on separating them by color before next season. Please list your colors and how you have them housed so we can get some diversity! [​IMG]

    Quote:Red, as in red golden tuxedo? Or rosetta? I'm asking so that others will know who to go to for eggs/birds, so specifics are kind of needed in this thread, not just chit-chat [​IMG]

    I also have project birds...not many of each weird mutation I accumulate. My most proud mutation is the beards [​IMG] I have managed to have the beards now in Pharaoh, Jumbo Brown, and Fawn (long story about how the fawn came into play)

    Each color is housed in individual pens to keep colors as pure as possible.
