    I would think of it to be a Jumbo Brown Coturnix Quail Chick. Good luck!

    keeping the names for the species and the colors organized can be confusing.

    some people call them "all" coturnix, japanese quail or even pharaoh. others can tell you color down to the allele

    it is a japanese quail, it is a golden colored bird. I think mibotsu nailed it with manchurian, which is a sub-color of goldens.

    this is one of those wiggle, waggle things. all wiggles are waggles but not all waggles are wiggles.
