Not great photography but these were in a local birdo's aviary. Something different.

All I can say is ....Wow!

Had King Quail as a kid, just the normals, then saw the fawns etc, etc .. but this? Unbelievable!

I'm impressed . .



Should be more King Quail combination mutations produced, because of their fecundity

But because they are 'cheap as chips', nobody really tries that hard

Great species for kids/ beginners to learn genetic inheritance and perhaps pick up a few bob by producing 'combos'



Hope that these pieds become established, but for reasons stated above, they could well be lost :(

Had a pied cinnamon some years back, no luck establishing but, due to low fertility. Very unusual problem in quail. Have heard of the odd one from time to time, but people do not seem interested in putting the effort in. Mum and I between us currently have 3 different types of fawn/cinnamon, and are looking at further playing with the genetics of these to fix types. (light fawn, deep cinnamon, speckled)
