    I have 3 6 week old quail, I was wondering what sexes they are and if anyone could take a guess based on their colours? I'm not sure how sexing works with quail.
    Anyway, here they are. The brown one just crowed at me as I took the photo, lol! Not sure about the other 2, both yellow. The first photo is of the brown one, a male. The 2nd photo is one of the yellow quail, the last 2 photos are of the other yellow quail (terrible photos, it wouldn't stay still!)

    Golden mutations color sex the same as pharaoh (wild type) quail. Those both have speckled chests so they are hens. The other bird is a tibetan tuxedo and would have to be vent sexed or seen crow as you did.
