Button quail male or female?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

One of my buttons came out this stunning color (the one in the corner). I'm trying to decide if it's male or female. It is white under the chin but otherwise??? I haven't seen it perform any obvious male behaviors.

Can you get a closer picture? Pretty hard for me to tell with this one but maybe someone else can!

I don't like to pick them up because they hate it, but here. Head shot and underside.

As far as I can tell, it's a slightly odd colored red breasted female :) My favorite color in females! Don't have any, but definitely will in the future ;)

It looks to be a hen from the speckles on the front chest area, and they do have white on the bib or face area.
