    I bought 9 coturnix quail 8 are suppose to be female but I think some are male. I got a cinnamon coturnix but its unsexed as I liked the colour of it and bought it. Could someone show me pictures of there sex 3-4 week old quail? because It wont let me upload pictures :(

    Thanks, Luke.

    Luke, click on this link and check out the article. About halfway down the page, there are photos of male and female quail of different varieties. Most quail can not be fully sexed until they are full grown, but the pics in the link should be of assistance.
    I hope this helps,
    James
