    Hey guys i have just got some mexican quail. One male with 3 unsexed youngsters. Do they have the similar colours to bobs? And how early do they start showing their male female colourings? Also any other info about them would be great the internet seams to be lacking ;) thanx

    The Mexican Speckle have similar marking as the regular bobwhites. You should be able to tell the males in about 4 to 6 weeks.
