Male Chinese painted quail blue-faced, bred in 2018.

The bird above pictured show what I consider to be the best expression of the single factor blue-face in Chinese painted quail (Coturnix chinensis).
It’s a male bred in my aviaries in 2018 and that I paired this season 2019 with a fallow female in the objective to produce a new bloodline of blue-faced fallow birds.
Once I will have produced enough blue-faced fallow offspring, he will be paired with high-quality wild coloured females. It will be more than probably in the begin of 2020.
