  • Blue quail is not a recognized variety. I would breed toward the quail standard and just replace black with blue. As far as knowing more about the standard I would look into buying a standard so that it can always be referred too as needed.
  • Thanks dusty. I appreciate it.
  • What do you think about these?

    No problem Matt By the way Janice Breed for the lighter colored birds and That Sport is throwing just that ... Alot I've seen are to dark with almost black tails .... You done good You did'nt have no Sports this year right ???
  • so we are supposed to breed toward a lighter blue standard rather than darker blue? Mine are all pretty dark but definitely not black.
  • You know I realy don't Know the lady I got mine from and thoughs he has are out of her Line She liked them on the lighter side If you look at the wing feathers and tails feathers on his pics there both about the same color of blue even the little pullet he has the body color is lighter ...But what Janice liked .... This varity is about like the Lemons Its gonna come down two your likes .... And by the way is the most important one .... and the Judges ....ones gonna like it one way and another the other .... Sport to Blue will make them lighter ....The best I rasied was out of a F3 blue sport male to F1 Quial hens .... Thats what Matt got his Sport Breeder male is out of a Sport to Blue cross of mine ....
  • Type over color though
  • Im still learning on that one .... lol
  • I think the third cockerel is the one I like most. I like that he's a light blue even into his hackle.
