    Hi, the differentces between male and female are simple to see. There are three scaled quails in picutre no. 1. That are two males and one female. The two in the front are the males and the one behind them is a female. You see, that the two males have a yellow throat, the one female´s is gray with black streaks.

    You see it´s very simple to see the differentces when you know it [​IMG] !

    You can see a pair of this species on my profile picture, there you can see the differences too.

    Best wishes from Germany!

    Those are great looking birds, Adriano! If you only have three, I would separate out the extra male...or get more hens. I keep mine in pen, 2 males to 5 female ratio.
