I am greatly confused. I know the coat difference between male and female with Japanese (Coturnix). Females having white chests and males having red chests. My Quail has a white chest. It looks the spit of what a female looks like. Yet it has never laid an egg. Also, females are supposedly quiet, whereas my quail calls out alot. All in all, it looks female but acts like a male. It is important I find out, I have Quail eggs incubating and two males together is a big nono. I don't have pictures i'm afraid, but it is the spitting image of a characteristic female.
