Determining gender of quail

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Im brand new to quail (had chickens growing up) and I have four coturnix quail babies that are now just about four weeks old (birthday was March 20th) I believe that I have two roos and two pullets but Im not absolutely positive. If anyone would be willing to help me just identify through coloring Id much appreciate it.

 

1. has a pink band and is in general really sweet.

2. has a yellow band (and is my favorite bird, i know picking children but really is my favorite child)

 

3. has a blue band. (fiesty one who gets out all the time.)

 

 

4. also has a blue band but is so much smaller than the rest of them that he's easy to pick out.

 

I think the top two are pullets and the bottom two are roos. But as I am new to quail. I could (and am most likely) be wrong. They were hard to catch as right now they live in the garage. As you can see #3 my feisty one is obviously unhappy. He wouldn't let me catch him without try to bounce away.

Thank you so much for your help!

Thanks so much! I was thinking so but wasn't quite sure.
