i have 5 mexician speckled bobwhite quail and was wondering if there was any specific way of telling them male from female such as color etc...????????
4 of them seem to have all black and white faces and the last one has like an orange face????????
thanks

They Will Not Tolerate Excess Males. As Far As Nesting--- Mine Wont Use Nest Boxes. None I Have Ever Had Would Ever Use Nest Boxes. They Just Pop Out The Eggs And Move On...

That Would Be The Best Advice... But, Dont Get Rid Of The Other Males Until Your Sure She Will Olerate The 1 You Put Her With (i Have A Black Widow Hen.... All The Bachelor Lads Take Turns Taking A Beating..)
