    Most of my quail have stopped laying/breeding. I am taking some younger ones to an auction tomorrow, but they are mostly whites and tibetans. So how do I sex them if they aren't breeding? I assume the swollen gland by the males' vents wouldn't be swollen if they have stopped?

    Idk Shelley.... Never Went By The Gland Thing.... Just Shape And Structures In Vents And That Stays The Same Year Round. Did Ya Recheck The Monarc Sexing Post---- Seems To Me She Had Some Good Pix There That Showed Shape And Structures.
