I love the Silver Quail - the prettiest mutation I reckon. The first time I bred a silver quail I freaked as the baby was green! I had to contact a friend who told me it would turn silver when it grows feathers!
I was advised that on another board, but by the time I noticed it, the eggs were cold, and one poor baby was half hatched, though dead. I have got the other 3 under a light, but I don't think they will hatch. Still, I will know next time
Yes Jules, their running around, and I believe they can eat themselves right from the start. It's really sweet to watch, Mummy walks around fluffed up, and the babies are hiding in her feathers - you can't see them at all! #heart#
