    Yes, the golden is a roo. The others you will have to vent sex or watch to see who crows.

    yer i think the parents were Tibetan and white birds. The tuxedo bird is my favorite she is very tame and nice looking.
    Are tuxedo birds uncommon when breeding ?i,d like to breed some.

    Tibetans /tuxedos are not a rare color of Coturnix.
    an excellent site to learn more is at Stellargamebirds.com she has lots of different birds but she specializes in Cots.

    Turns out 3 of the four are males:(
    It is the start of spring here in Australia and i,m setting up a breeding pen. i,m trying to chose my best male and cull the rest. My females are 3 whites, a gold and Tibetan, i,m having trouble choosing a male, i like the tuxedo and the gold male. how should i chose for best results in offspring. Kyle
