    i got some jumbo quails and am not sure what colour they are.

    i was happy with any jumbo quail as i live in oz and they are hard to find here.

    i have got 3 hens and one roo.
    two of the hens look a bit like goldens.
    the other hen looks like a cross with a brown.
    the roo i'm not sure about.

    here are some photos.
    the two hens that look like goldens (there are two like this but only got photos of one of them as they are the same).

    Ok Youri I See A Standard Golden--- Do You Know The Age Of This Bird? The Chest Coloration Is A Lil Ambiguous--- If Its Young It Could Be Either Hen Or Roo---- Lots Of Rust, Lil Or No Spots??? Hard To Tell For Sure. The Second Is A Standard Brown, The Final Bird Looks Like Rosetta Tuxedo--- Nice Rare Coloration Too! As Far As What You'll Get From This Mix--- Idk I'll Leave That To The Genetic Mad Scientists Around Here--- I'm Not A Color Freak. So I Havent Commited The Whole Gene Map That Looks Like A Road Atlas Of Isreal To Memory. Sorry [​IMG]

    Quote:thanks.
    what do you mean by a Standard Golden?
    i thought it was not a golden because they don't have to spots.
    the two golden looking ones are 10 to 12 weeks i think the other two are a bit younger.

    thanks again.

    cheers youri.
