    And I've watch them and its the Texas A&M one that are the loudest, lol I think might have to.
    But the thing is I'm not sure which are female and which are male (other then the ones crowling and they haven't started to lay yet at 8weeks old.

    Have you tried covering them with a bed sheet to keep them in the dark a bit longer? Mine started crowing pretty early, but now i cover them overnight and their day does not begin until i say it does.

    In that case you have my condolences. Or perhaps my congratulations on your upcoming quail BBQ bonanza.
