    Hi everyone. I am new to the site and brand new to raising quail. So far I am loving it! My 8 babies are 3 weeks old today and I am so anxious to find out if i have boys or girls. I am comparing to pictures on other threads but being such a newbie am having a hard time with some. Some are obvious like the first is a male and the last is a female but I need help.[​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Sorry they uploaded in the incorrect order. I think,
    M,?, F, ?, ?, M, M, ?

    My best guess - M, F, F, F, M, M, M, M

    Some you may just need to wait until they mature a little more.

    Just wait a few daya and it will plainly obvious. Looks like M F F F F M M F at this point but in a few days the mystery will go away.

    Thanks everyone! It's week four tomorrow and looks like 3 boys and 5 girls. I guess I just had to be patient.
