Newbie to quail and backyard chickens.com

Hi- I've had chickens before- and am actually getting three next week after moving last May and finishing up our new coop and run- but quail are new to me. I received 5 two week old coturnix a week ago. One promptly died and I think I am left with two boys and two girls. Can anyone confirm from the pictures? I can give back as many males as I don't want to keep to the person that I got them from. I also have 12 quail eggs in the incubator that I'm hoping to get at least a few (again, quail are all new to me). Thanks!

Only one image is working for me, but the one that loaded looks male (possibly last pic from what i can tell)

No spots on the upper chest and a rusty brown colour means its male.
If it crows its male.

Thanks! I could only get one to load?? Anyway 2 were boys- I did a little trading so now I have 23 week old and then an adult male and female . Female is laying- so exciting!
