    I would say a cinnamon female quail you have. Might be wrong though.... usually males have white stripes soon their face

    Thanks zadebrown01, I did think it was female but it sounded like it was crowing today he/she is about 12 weeks old. No rust on the vent area but vent looks femlale?

    Yes only one I have. I have just put it with a silver cock bird as I don't have the parents and then breed back from the splits?
