    Hey, I was wondering if anyone could help me with identifying the sex of these little guys!

    Smallest, most flighty and vocal

    Not shy of being handled but always on the move

    Largest and most chill, this one startles at nothing.

    I have one other not pictured that is pure white. Figured I'd have to just wait and see with that one. They're all from the same setting and hatched within 2 days of each other.

    Yeah, they're a lot more fun to raise than I thought, their little chirping sounds are so pretty and gurgling

    Sure thing, good luck with your quail! I just hatched some last week and they are such adorable critters!

    Oh they look like mine! The rusty breasted one's are boys and the speckles are girls...I've been experimenting with sexing via sound....my first batch the vocal one's were the boys...I'm on my second batch any paying attention to who is the loudest...hope this works! They are just the neatest little birds aren't they?

    They really are neat, each one has its own personality.
