Pair #1 produced some beautiful chicks. They also produced a male of a color that I have not seen in person before. I believe the color is likely “Smoky”. Smoky is a combination of 3 mutations: blueface, cinnamon and silver. The best way I can describe this fellow is to say he is lighter than a slate button quail with a cinnamon overtone. I do not have the “ideal” mate for him to try and get more of this color currently. So for now, he will be paired with either a single factor or double factor slate female (both hens are offspring of pair #3 and it is unknown whether either bird carries cinnamon). The other bird in these photos is slate in color.
