Title: Fawn Bobwhites
Post by: Peacerose on November 08, 2015, 03:33:54 AM
Back in the summer I got some fawn bobwhite eggs from ebay.  Six chicks hatched -- 4 fawn, 1 Mexican speckle, 1 red.  They are about 12 weeks.  One of the fawn died recently.  The remaining birds are probably 2 roos and 1 hen.  They live with their brood mates and 2 older Mexican speckle roos.

Clockwise from upper left:  Fawn (roo), Mexican Speckle, Fawn (roo), Mexican speckle, Fawn (hen)

The top headstripe of the young Fawns is greyish-brown.  Black on Mexican Speckle.  Eye stripe of Fawn roo is darker, nearly black.  Overall body color of a Fawn is like a light Mexican Speckle with lighter  spots.

Clockwise from upper left:  Red (almost invisible), Fawn (roo), Mexican Speckle (roo?), Fawn (hen), Fawn (roo), Mexican Speckle (roo), Mexican Speckle (roo).

The bobwhites are very fun.  I can't wait till you hatch your first bobwhite.  You will lose you mind over the cuteness!   lol
