    thanks for your reply. yeah im leaning that way now, the more phots i see of males the less likely i think that this is one :) shame as that means i have only 2 males then out of 12 quail. is 5 females too much per male?


    any idea on the colours?

    5 females are fine per 1 male and yes I agree that one is female, she is of the golden variety and I see you have a nice golden male too [​IMG] the brown ones are the normal wild type.
