    In the first photo, the one on the left is female. The middle is male, and the one on the right I'm not so sure. I'm thinking female.

    Second photo, and male and what looks like it might be a female (bird on the right from first photo?)

    Just my opinion!

    thanks blackbird!!

    what should I look for to tell them apart, I know it's got to be something, just don't know what.

    and what kind are they?

    BB, what is it that you see there that helps you determine that? I personally can only imagine quails being manhandled by pteradons at some point, so can't distinguish a thing.

    I go by the 'wattles' and the 'crown'. Males have a larger 'crown' and their 'wattles' are larger and more rounded. Again, the bird on the right I'm still not really sure about, I would have to see it in person to know.

    They look like Pearl's to me.
