Male quail

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I hear loud calls from the back yard from my quail does that mean they could be males or do females do that to. How else can I tell if it's a male or female.

yep,  just like crickets!  When mine get stressed it gets louder and louder until it sounds like they're saying "shutup shutup shutup"...

 

My males are now crowing all night long...does anyone else have this happening?
