Chinese painted quail (Coturnix chinensis) blue-face fallow from breeding season 2014.

The under-reported pictures are from some young Chinese painted quail bred during the breeding season 2014.
This is the combination of the dominant mutation “blue-face” with the recessive “Fallow” dilution gene.
They maybe were my first produced chicks of the colour-combination.
Nice to see how the Fallow gene works diluting all the feathers producing this pale and delicate phenotype.
I hope you like it!
