This classic Schofield Silver Quail Collection was imported from Canada in 2014. It includes several unique and iconic plumages such as Silver, Andalusian, Lavender, Blue, Slate, Charcoal, Cream, and Snowie. The majority of the "Silver" birds have the Andalusian gene. Andalusian, Silver, and Blue are incomplete dominant, while Lavender is recessive, so breeding can be somewhat unpredictable. Two copies of the Silver or Andalusian genes make birds an off-white color, but they often fail to thrive. We recommend crossing any birds with silver plumage to non-silver birds for the best results, which we also do at our farm to produce the best hatching experience for you.
The Schofield Silver Collection has been interbred with many plumages, and resulted in an astonishing number of colors and plumage patterns. Silver plumage can present with Tuxedo or Pied patterns and dilute the wild type, Italian, Rosetta, Pansy, 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, and 50% silver versions of those feather patterns.
