    By the look of my coturnix they all seem to be female but I wanted expert quail owners to confirm it!

    Also the last two pics are a mix between two quail but I'm not sure which ones, can anybody tell me their guess on which quail it's mixed with. Thank you!

    The last two look like tuxedos, I have three and I still can't be sure. Check for The bump that Males have above their vent, that's how I figured out My white ones. If you press on it a bit of foamy stuff comes out. All your others look like girls. The other way to tell The gender of the tuxes is basically observation, watch them and see if they crow with all those lovely ladies if you've got boys theyre eventually gonna wanna sing to them and tell them how awesome they are Lol .

    Do you think I could house my jumbo and standard coturnix together?
