Celadon Layer (Blue-Egger) Coturnix Quail Eggs - Southwest Gamebirds

Celadon (Blue-Egger) Collection Hatching Eggs

From $55.99

Celadon Layer quail contain an exciting gene discovered in Canada that produces a light blue egg, rather than the typical speckled brown egg that quail are known for. Celadon layers can come in any color. Our flock consists primarily of Red Range, Scarlet, Tibetan, Rosetta, White, and the tuxedo versions of each of these varieties, as well as new varieties we have introduced the celadon gene to including Egyptian Fee, Autumn Amber, Red Grau Fee, and a fan favorite - Red Pearl - which will eventually be released as a standalone product. Celadons are notoriously difficult to breed, cross, develop, and maintain because they are associated with several health defects. We believe that these health defects can be largely overcome with proper breeding and enough persistence. Celadon quail tend to be a little more fragile than other quail, have higher chick mortality, and the eggs are more fragile in the mail making them more difficult to hatch initially.

What to expect: An assortment of plumages, all of which reach standard size and most of which lay a light blue egg. Part of the fun is seeing which ones lay blue, and we are getting each line more pure with each generation. Because Celadon Layers have been selectively bred for egg color, their eggs do tend to be smaller, around 10-12 grams.

We ship all Celadon Layer hatching eggs with care in custom foam for insulation and protection during transport. The post office can be unpredictable, but this shipping method gives your eggs the best chance of maintaining viability, and we always include extra eggs free of charge when available. While we cannot guarantee your hatching success, we are more than willing to assist with any incubation or shipping related issues, so feel free to contact us at any point of your quail journey if you have questions or concerns about your eggs. Our goal is to make you happy with high quality eggs, fast shipping, and good customer service.
