    I have heard of people using very small zip ties for tagging certain quail. Could I do that to mark the male quail?

    There is no reason that you couldn't. Make sure they are small enough, and if you get colored ones then you can represent many differing identifications instead of just male/female. If you use one color for hatching year and another color for sex on all of your birds, it provides information at a glance that can be very valuable to you.
