    Perhaps you have a transgender quail going on, or one of them lost one of his nuts?

    There are lots of women and men that take on the appearance of each other when together too long, I suppose that is what happened here.

    Anyways, its probably not a testicle, as eggs look like that sometimes, esp. when stressed.

    That is the wrong shape, and the same size as a chicken testicle.
