    I have jumbo brown and T A&M coturnix quail that I hatched , I am pretty sure this odd ball one came from a jumbo egg but not 100% anyone know what color it is? its the one in the middle looks kinda silvery to me.

    It looks like a Ginger or Manchurian mutation. Manchurian/Italian Speckled is a light mutation of brown. When it grows up it should look like a fawn colored Coturnix with black spots. Ginger looks identical to the Manchurian, only the black spots are diluted to be more of a brown shade.

    It looks like my jumbo golden I hatched from Sam's stock.

    That's what Jumbo Golden's look like? (I have ~ 65 in my incubator right now) Are the males/females easy to tell apart? At what age?
