    some of you may be fallowing one of my threads of my Button Quail chicks hatching and a scary mishap where the incubator was knocked into..

    Well 2 of the shells are open now and I can see one of the chicks has Black and Gold stripes on its head

    Does anyone know what color mutation that will turn into?

    Wheres Quail Lady at?!

    but yeah their still wet and technically still in the egg! theres just a small hole in the top where I can see their heads. it looks like the 2nd one might be all black! I'll get pictures when they decide to come out! a Pearl would be nice! [​IMG]

    Quote:I just thought it was interesting seeing the black and gold white she's still in the egg. I wasnt going to persue it until they hatched and fluffed up. I was asking what color mutation was like that as a baby
