I have five quail hatched together who are now five weeks old. Three are white two are golden. Both my golden look like they are getting the male tan colour. However one of my goldens is attacking one of my whites and it has cuts on its head now. Is it unlikely to be female if a male is attacking it? But he's not picking on the other suspected/known male? I've tried vent sexing but I can't tell a difference. I've removed the poorly head pecked one so it can heal up. I put it near my older males and they didn't try to hump it! Another sign it's male? I'm hoping maybe they will accept it "him" if it turns out a boy..... And just as a side note: I had a female that picked on another female but since they moved to live outside seem ok now. Or maybe have finished establishing their pecking order??
