    Cuz and I are in the same boat, I'm afraid. I'm certain someone here will be able to help you though, so don't worry.

    Oh, those are beautiful quail :)

    I've only raised bobwhite, but if the traits are similar, that would be a male dead center of the pic(second from left, at back. Female on very left). He has a ridge on his crest and a thicker, darker line around the eye.

    The males will make a different call, too. I'm not sure about this breed, but the male bobwhite makes a series of whistles, where the females do more of a soft "chirrup"...

    Thanks for sharing the pic; they're very nice looking quail :)
