    Is there a sure fire way to determine which are (coturnix) roosters? I have 10 (from 2 separate breeders). I have different color birds. Does size have anything to do with it?

    If you look at the vent, there should be a bump. squeeze it, if foam comes out voila.

    If you hear crowing, that's another tell tale :p

    Well, if they are adults.

    How old are your quail?
    Which type of quail?
    What colors?

    There are a lot of different types of quail that people here raise. j. Coturnix, c. Coturnix, Bobwhites, etc.
