    At our swap this past weekend after everyone had left, I found these two quail in our barn. One was pretty beat up especially on one side of its head. There was a person who brought quail. I asked another BYC member who was talking to the quail person and she said the quail person said they were Coturnix quail. One looks like a Coturnix but I'm not sure about the other quail. Can you tell by these pictures? One quail didn't want to cooperate when I was trying to take their pictures?

    Thanks, Alieda (cmom)

    Now I'm thinking that the one may be an EE chick.

    I replied on another post you made, but I agree you have a male brown coturnix and a youngish chick (probably 6-8 weeks old).
