The Japanese Quail, scientifically known as Coturnix japonica, is a species of Old World quail found in East Asia. Once considered a subspecies of the common quail, it is now recognized as a separate species. This bird has been an important part of human life since the 12th century and continues to play significant roles in both industry and scientific research. Across its range, the Japanese Quail is abundant and prevalent. There are several true breeding mutations of the species, including breeds such as Texas A&M, English White, Golden Range, Red Range, Italian, Manchurian, Tibetan, Rosetta, Scarlett, Roux Dilute, and Golden Tuxedo, which are found in the United States.
