My male quail is crowing- loud annoying bird, lol. I thought I had all females- at least they looked like female to me. The only one I wasnt sure about was a pied- white chest, chestnut body. Guess which one is making all the racket? Yep, thats it. Standing tall and proud, and sounding every bit like a loud chicken : BAAAAKAAAAKKKKK BAAAKAAAKKKK over and over again out there, before the sunrise. They are six weeks old today.
