    what are your plans with the birds, just for show, or breeding?

    Quote:hey, go for it Kid!, I had a hard time deciding, your way leaves your options open. but holy sam heck, are you gonna have pens for each kind?
    I personally, like the adage "quality over quantity", and think attention to details is hard enough with one strain or breed of any animal.
    I think the lifecycle of the Coturnix japonica makes it easy to see the fruits or melons of your labors. kind of makes us all mad Quail scientists in a way.
    I am on my way, as you are.
    I plan on hatching off as many coturnix del blanco as I can handle, and selecting for what "we" here like at different stages of their growth.
    and then, "I" desire a Coturnix that feathers quickly, is almost pure white in color, is larger than 10 oz live weight at ~10 wks, lays nice size eggs (~15 grams) and is pleasing to "my" eye.
    I don't plan on selling eggs or birds, we will eat what we win or lose along the way.

    best of luck, your humble brother on the path, TD

    I have colors mixed everywhere from breeding projects that went wrong and I didn't have time for... I'm about to start building an 8x4 cage with two sections. Then I'll be able to finish separating.

    THere is Red Range, scarlett (which like Shelley said is Red....the rosetta version in red), and Tibetan is Dark Range.
