Male or female golden coturnix quail

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi I was just wondering if anyone could offer some thoughts on gender. I'm pretty sure pic 1 is a female and pic 2,3,4 are males. It's butchering day and I'd just hate to accidentally butcher a future egg layer because of my own rookie skills because I never had goldens before. Thanks!

Edit: they're about 8 weeks old give or take a couple days if that helps. No luck vent sexing yet or any calling. But also no eggs either.
