A genetically pure male of Chinese painted quail, bred 2019.

Young male born in 2019 from one of my two breeding pairs of pure wild Chinese painted quail (Coturnix chinensis).
Note the nice colouration:

  • completely blue breast without any red feathers
  • nice back pattern free of any traces of the pearl factor
  • the red iris.

After many years attempting to get those pure birds again in my collection, it is now a true pleasure to see them every day and see those birds breed in my aviaries!
For now, I try to make a sufficient amount of chicks before selling to anyone.
