    Here are some updated pictures. They are two days away from being five weeks old. One of the EW's is now crowing. I caught him. Must be him I was hearing yesterday. Actually I caught him crowing repeatedly. I think he was crowing to tell me to get out of the quail pen. [​IMG]

    This first picture shows 7 of the 9. It's missing one of the whites & I haven't taken time to see who else. They really like those fall fake flowers. Someone was throwing them out at work. I snatched them up for my quail babies.

    The tally so far:

    Manchurians - 1 girl, 1 probable boy (based on color)
    Wild / brown - boy (based on color)
    EW -- one confirmed boy (crowing); 2 ?

    3 others...time will tell

    Quote:Yup! I have fake flowers in both big pens. The fall trailing ones were added recently. They are great to hide under, and since they were free, they were even better. [​IMG] Plus, I can soak them to clean them if needed & if I end up having to throw them away...well, I have some really GAUDY fake flowers in the basement that came free with a pretty wooden box I bought somewhere.

    What a sweet face. I'm glad everything worked out for you with her/him.
