They sure look Italian;
But about the genders, it's hard to actually tell who's what from the pictures perspective.
Though from what I can see, it looks like you do have one female and seven male.
But to double check, look at your quail's chest, if they have spots, it's a girl, if they have no spots and it seems like a more rusty orange colour, then it's a boy.

Otherwise, I believe your friend is correct!

Just look as their chest. The male has more rusty color than female. They are easy to sex at about 3 weeks and older.

Yep boys have more rusty color.

If you want us to sex them just post up more pictures from a side or front view. Aerial view is a wee bit harder :p
