    I have 9 quail (Pharoah) 6 week old I think they are half male/female and I just got my first egg today but it was light brown had no spots and was kinda small. Also I saw some of the males were pooping out white foamy stuff? I saw some of the male chasing the females and they have bold spots on their foreheads. Do I have to separate them because I only have 1 feeder/waterer

    You can use most anything for waterers and feeders, just that they waste feed or the water dirties faster.

    So what size cage are they in?
    Do you have another cage to put the extra males?
    What are your plans for your extra males?

    I have 9 quail in breeding cages, but only 1 or 2 males.

    I Think The Most Prudent Thing Is To Read The Coturnix Quail Information Post Located At The Top Of The Page Here In The Sticky Post And Figure Out What You Have Exactly As Far As Sexes Goes... Usually The Males Dont Poop Out Foamy Stuff, They Excrete It When Breeding The Females--- The Females Will Often Have Theis Foamy Substance In Their Droppings After Being Bred. So Lets Start With The Basics And Then We Can Steer You From There [​IMG] Read The Post And See If You Can Figure Out Boys Vs Girls? Then Get A Head Count Of Each.
