    These are my very first button quail, they're 3 days old. Just wondering if anyone could help me with colors? Not sure if it's too early

    My guesses:
    1. Tux, white on the bottom and Tibetan on the top. Very cute. I love these. They look like penguins.
    2. Tibetan
    3. Rosetta
    4. Normal Brown
    5. Normal Brown? This one is hard to tell.

    Thanks so much for your help :D We're really excited to see how the first chick (Roxy) turns out. She's such an interesting color lol. And thank you for the advice on the 3rd one. His little markings look like a normal type, but the colors are inverted, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I just can't wait for them to feather out :D

    The colors above are for coturnix quail. Are they coturnix or buttons there is a difference in colors

    My guess is that the top is definitely a tux, the second looks like a blue faced and the bottom three look like either blue breasted or red breasted. Adorable and congrats!

    Thank you :) I love them very much lol. They're so active. They're only 5 days old and i can already see little feather pins, I can't believe how fast they're growing up
