Tac (girl, I know)
I don't know much about quail. I had some for a short time but got rid of them. However, I'm pretty sure the 1st one is a roo. Maybe the last one too but not sure on that one.
Um...thanks? I'm kind of looking for a clear-cut answer here.
A full body side-shot photo would help. It's kind of hard to tell when all you can see is the head. Though I will admit, Tic is a boy.
He is a cinnamon red breasted male
Ok.... Here I go
Tic is a Cinnamon red breasted male 100%
Tac looks like a male...Blue Faced male. Are you sure there is no red?? Maybe the photo just shows more blue. It could be just a blue faced hen if that's that the case. Could you take another picture of this one??? please
Are the last two pictures the same (Chickapee)...That is a cinnamon red breasted FEMALE. The bib is different on that color mutation. I am 100% positive that is a girl.
It's actually neither (for Tac). I'll take pics, but Tac is completely black. The excess light in the room makes it look different. I'm actually very happy that Chickapee is a girl. I wanted a girl...erm, anyways, I think Tac is also a girl. That would explain the feather-loss on Chickapee's head (pecking). I'll take another picture in a few minutes.
If Tac is black then she is a blue face hen. Here are is a picture of one of my blue face pairs. First one is a female and second is a male.
I guess so. Here's a vid that I just took. I don't know if the technique to hold them like that is safe, but why wouldn't it be? Usually when I do that, they are calm. Only once or twice, they get scared and jump back on their feet.
