    I'm no quail expert, that's for sure... but they all have that reddish brown chest, so I guess boys too. Beautiful [​IMG]

    I'm no expert either. I'm just hatching my first quail today/tomorrow. But wanted to say thanks for posting the pics. It will be a big help when I get to that point. By the way, nice looking birds!

    This is only my second hatch, first hatch only had 3. Then this group had 23. So still not real sure what I am doing. But they said brownish chest is a male. I have noticed my females have more spots than the males.
