    Quote:go to today's post about ..japanese quail and white feathers..there's a pic of a young tux coturnix in that post.
    Whites are just that...white or at least primarily white .while a tuxedo has white chest,fliights and white around the eyes. Neither one of these colors can be visually sexed

    I was just joking around, but the "visually sexing" means they have no colored breast feathers that distinguish males from females. I have never tried to vent sex quail before. I mainly raise browns but there have been a few of my other colors that i have had to beer sex once they got old enough. [​IMG]

    This is also a tuxedo (red), though she's not marked very well:

    And what loopy meant about 'visually' sexing is this--male in front (clear breast feathers), female behind (spotted breast):
