I would like to know if any could help,what color mutation will this baby be when its all grown up I know I should be patient but take a look at the at his feet they are dark all the buttons I've seen have yellow or orange... Hope I have a nice color mutation bab
There's no real way of telling until they fully grow their feathers (not when they start to grow their feathers as their feathers can change colours completely).
Its a real pretty chick though. I'm guessing it could be a tuxedo, but I don't know a lot about button quail colourations.
He's a spaz and I had to grab him yesterday so he's extra spooked. It was hard to get a pic, but this is him. He's mostly dark except you can see a bit of lighter feathers poking through on the top of his head and when he opens his wings, you can really see the white feathers on his wings. There's a lot more white than you see when they're folded.
Edited to add his mate because she's so beautiful and sweet. her feathers are a little ruffled here, this is the day we got her. Her markings are so pretty and normally look perfect:
Oh he's a real nice looking little guy I hope my little one looks like him. Your little girl is beautiful I have one just like her she's giving me white babies,silvers, and cinnamon her boy friend is a tuxedo color..I'm getting addictive to incubating all my quail eggs and so far all have been hatching right now I have 25 babies tomorrow 10 will hatch and another 10 will go on lock down tomorrow so by the end of this week ill have 45 babies OMG I have to start selling some.....
