    Ok, this is the only quail that I can't figure if it is male or female. The white patch on its chest is throwing me off. Im thinking Male, but a second opinion is always good. Thanks for your help. IMG-4158.JPG IMG-4159.JPG

    The rusty chest colour does suggest it's a male. I have some girls with white splotches on their chests - I rather like it.

    yea I would say male. the white patch is probably from an English white.

    Thank you. I appreciate the second opinions. Just wanted to be sure I was making the correct assumption about him.
