This classic Schofield Silver Quail Collection was imported from Canada in 2014. It includes several rare colors such as silver, lavender, blue, slate, charcoal, and cream. The majority of the “Silver” birds have a gene called Andalusian, which is partially dominant, meaning that birds with one copy of the gene exhibit silver coloring. Two copies of the gene make birds a snowy white color, but due to the genetic quality of the line this is often associated with many health defects. We recommend crossing any birds with silver plumage to non-silver birds for the best results.
The Schofield Silver Quail collection has been interbred with many colors, and resulted in an astonishing number of colors and feather patterns. Silver plumage can present with Tuxedo and Pied patterns and dilute the wild type, Italian, Rosetta, Golden Manchurian, and Tibetan varieties. They are a must-have for any collector.
What to expect: An assortment of approximately 50% undiluted colors and feather patterns, 50% silver versions of those colors and feather patterns.
