    Two weeks ago I bought home 6 baby quails. I wanted 5 females and 1 male but at this point I am not sure what we have. They are about 3-4 weeks old now. Please tell me what I have.
    Also can anyone varify what breeds they are?

    They are coturnix, the variety is either standard or Jumbo Pharaoh. First two photos are males, the other three are females. Beautiful birds!

    At this age I would say it's fine. Just keep an eye for pecking order.
