    You can't tell by color with these, your going to have to vent sex them and they look to young to vent sex.

    How come the sex cannot be determined by color? Forgive me, I am new to quail - but I thought feather color on the breast area could tell the gender?

    That's only for the wild brown and the golden colours. All white, tuxedo, and tibetan all have to be vent sexed, wait for eggs or wait for crowing.
