Cinnamon Coturnix Quail Eggs - Southwest Gamebirds

Cinnamon Hatching Eggs

From $78.99

Cinnamon is a rare, sex linked recessive mutation closely related to albino, causing chicks to hatch with red eyes sensitive to light. While our cinnamon chicks are extremely fragile, they grow into hardy and productive birds, ranging in weight from 250-300 grams and producing 12-16 gram eggs. Cinnamon has a unique light rust color, white primary feathers, and lightened grey and orange tones throughout. In our opinion it is one of our most beautiful varieties, and it interacts well with many other plumage genes. We recommend cinnamon only for advanced Coturnix keepers due to their fragile nature as chicks. Their fragility as chicks and overall rarity make this an excellent variety for those looking for something unique, beautiful, and challenging. 

What to expect: 100% pure, sex linked Cinnamon. While it is possible for cinnamon to carry other recessive traits, we have not observed this in our flock. You may also request in your order notes that we include additional cinnamon plumage varieties. We have recently combined the cinnamon dilution with fawn and sparkly, which we can include in limited quantities.

We ship all Cinnamon 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.
