The remaining quail from our first spring hatch appear to consist of 5 males, 1 female, which is very annoying. Anyway, they are starting to fight so was ready to sell 3 of them to the pet store when my daughter got home from school, (they are her money making hobby), and thought I would get my husband to confirm sex by doing the foam test. Our thoughts on sexes were determined by chest colouring, 5 have a 'flat' chest colour and 1 has a speckled chest. Seemed correct from pics we had looked at. Anyway, only 3 produced foam! So now I'm confused and uncertain. Could it just be that the other two we thought were male haven't reached maturity yet? They are 6.5 weeks old. Rang pet store to postpone sale, which had to do regardless because as we were checking them they got a bit rattled and two got into a nasty fight and now have bleeding heads, so they have been separated.
