    Hello all,

    I have a white coturnix out of 35 hatching eggs. The eggs are all spotted and hatched on the 17th day. So I'm sure it's not bobwhite. Is white coturnix rare? Where can I get more of them (that do shipping)? Any recommendations of places to place the order?

    Thanks so much!

    That could be English White or Texas A&M variety of coturnix. Lots of breeders keep those - you can find hatching eggs online (ebay, craigslist etc) or find a NPIP certified breeder.

    BobWhite quail are a completely different breed of quail.
    You must be talking about a Texas A&M quail you can order hatching eggs online to whereever you find your hearts content.

    The parents likely have recessive white genes with so much cross and inner breeding it is almost impossible to get a true to type coturnix any more.
