This classic Schofield Silver Quail Collection was imported from Canada in 2014. It includes several rare colors such as silver, lavender, blue, slate, charcoal, cream. The “Silver” gene is 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 silver birds with 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. Silvers take on the Tuxedo and Pied pattern and dilute the wild type, Italian, Rosetta, Golden Manchurian, and Tibetan colors. They are a must-have for any collector.
What to expect: An assortment of approximately 25% undiluted colors and feather patterns, 50% Andalusian, or silver versions of those colors and patterns, and 25% double diluted Andalusian, which appear snow-like off white.
