Manchurian Golden Quail is a beautiful alternative to wild type birds for those looking to add to their collection or to raise quail for eggs. Crossing Manchurian Golden Quail birds with wild type birds will result in Italian colored offspring. The partial dominant fawn-2 gene which researchers suspect is the same gene described in earlier literature as “fawn” is responsible for this. Many people confuse fawn-2 with lethal yellow. These are not the same gene. While they look similar, there is no risk of lethality, fertility, or hatch rate from crossing Manchurian Golden Quail with each other or from crossing them with other birds. We do this at our farm every week!
Manchurian Golden Quails are an 8-12 oz bird that lays 12-14 gram eggs. Through selective breeding, we are slowly increasing the size of our Golden Manchurians to make them a true jumbo line.
What to expect: This is a pure line. Only Manchurian Golden Quail will hatch from these eggs. They can, however, be crossed with wild-type birds to add Italian to the mix.
