So I have 6 one month old bobwhite chicks, and I have noticed that only 1 has gotten very bright white feathers on and underneath it's wings that are quite long. Is this an indication of gender? Thanks so much!

Im no quail expert, but yes, I would take this as an arrow to gender. As the chick grows, just watch for signs that he/she is larger than the others, slightly more aggressive, marks themselves as the leader. . .etc. Or when theyre big enough you can just sex them.If it shows these signs, its probably male.
