Red Range & Red Range Tuxedo Celadon quail contain an exciting gene discovered in Canada that produces a pale light blue egg rather than the typical speckled brown egg that quail are known for. The gene that causes Celadon eggs was once considered the rarest coturnix gene in the world. Celadon layers can come in an assortment of colors. This is our signature line of pure Red Range & Red Range Tuxedo Celadons, so they will be only these two distinct plumages. Celadon eggs are a pale light blue color and are not as vibrant as robin eggs. Lighting will significantly affect perception of the blue color, with natural sunlight producing the most vibrant blue perception. Dim yellow light or strong flash will produce the most pale perception, almost making them look white.
What to expect: Red Range & Red Range Tuxedo plumages, all of which will reach standard size. Females will all lay pale light blue eggs of around 10-12 grams, and males will all carry two copies of the celadon gene (homozygous celadon).
These birds are sold straight run, meaning they are not sexed and we do not guarantee any specific ratio of males and females. The displayed price is per bird.
