I'm new to keeping quails. My first set have survived hatch and infancy and are now on their third day outside.
Of my flock 11 are golden. That will make sexing and separating easy.
The rest are all tuxedo or tibetan and I know that will be harder.
My question to everyone is; do you have a particular process for identifying and separating males and females. Do you have a particular pen set up? Do you separate as you happen to notice behaviour indicators or do you try to do it in one run?
At what age?
At the moment my chicks are 3 weeks old so i have them all running in one 1m by 1.3m tractor.
