    My Coturnix quail chicks wont be 2 weeks old till this monday and i already have 3 males crowing..lol

    It's cute though... not as loud as i thought it would be but then and again there still young lol

    But yea i was sitting in front of both the Button and Coturnix tanks watching them like i always do..and about 5mins later i was looking at the Coturnix chicks and one stood up straight like on it's tippy toes and made the funniest sound then 2 more did it.. [​IMG]

    I was already trying to see wich was male and female since they have most of there feather markings in but now so far i have 3 males pointed out..lol

    I'll be posting pics tomorrow of the Coturnix and the Buttons since the Button quail chicks will be 2 weeks old tomorrow [​IMG]

    Like someone shaking the little guy lol. It's a warbled noise. Your quail are crowing very early! Mine don't seem to start till around 3-4 weeks. Though right now I'm starting to spot my males in my regular coturnix as the rust colored chests and face masks are starting to appear.
