    I would like to sex her before getting her any partners for the cage, but I'm totally new to the world of Quail breeding as I've shown and bred Bantams all of my life but due to space I have decided Quail are my next Hobby. I only have one atm and . I would like to know what colour she is? and if she is a male or female. I know that black speckling down the front means they are females [​IMG]


    Im not sure if the speckling mine has is just part of its colour or its a female I have also posted a pic of its vent (not the best quality but its the best I was able to do)
    Thanks for your help
