I recently purchased two trios of Chinese Quail, however I'm not sure what colours they are. The first trio, I'm guessing the male could be Normal red breasted, but not sure, since his red feathers aren't really at his breast? The two girls that are with him are also a mystery - they're both different colours, I think, due to one having a lighter face and chin area. ; That's the boy. Girl with the darker face and bib-area. Girl with the lighter face/bib. The second trio were sold to me as Silver Laced, which could be Blue faced silvers? Hen Cock However, the second female in the group is very dissimilar to the other two. Hopefully you can see in the picture, but she has a pale bib area, like a regular silver, but cream feathers mixed in. She's the prettiest little bird I have <3 She's currently in isolation while she recovers from an injury - should I be looking into buying in another cock and pairing her up with him, if she's another colour? The brown hens are about 8 weeks old now and I'm starting to get the occasional egg from them - is a phased introduction to laying normal for quail? I know chickens can take a while to settle into a pattern. Nothing from either of the silver hens, although I think the one with cream still has another week before she's supposed to start. Thanks a lot for any help!
