    I only have 3 Bobwhite Quail babies and was wondering if they are male or female. Please help if you can, the pics aren't very good but it does show there patterns pretty ok. Thanks in advance! Sandy

    Bobwhites are easy! White on the head is a boy...brown is a girl! Unless they are reds or Mexican speckels or something like that then [​IMG]

    just a note in the pictures there throats look white but they are really a light tan or brownish beige color. The last picture is closest to there true colors. So Im thinking maybe girls but I don't know. They are the same two in each picture.
