The Snowflake Bobwhite Quail are a special and rare color variant of the Bobwhite Quail, originated from the Mexican Speckled Bobwhite Quail. The snowflake is a natural color mutation discovered by Kenny Armstrong of GunRunner Gundogs. In 2004 he hatched 2 mysterious off -white chicks in a hatch, along with his Mexican Speckled bobwhites. Of the first two only one lived to maturity. In 2005 he hatched 9 more. In 2006 he discovered they were breeding true. The next year he confirmed this.
They are quite adaptable to cold weather. They do need shelter from the wind.
