Male or Female Button Quail?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Can anyone tell me if this is a male or female button quail please, it is 4 weeks old.

I want to say female because she doesn't have a mask. You could vent sex or see if she lays an egg.

I read somewhere that it is hard to tell male from female with this colour, as it has a white neck already, and not sure how to check the vent.

there are youtube videos on vent sexing.  But, I don't think it is old enough to do that with yet

I have hatched a few of this colour, I think they are called tuxedo.
