Hi,
Would it be possible to sex bobwhite quail chicks? I know they are fairly simple to sex as adults but just wanted to get an idea of what i have with my chicks.

Thanks !!

Depending on their age.. if you are talking about sexing them before they start to show their true colors, Vent sexing is the only way I know of.

Yeah vent sexing I believe is the only way to determine their sex, but if youre gonna try to do it yourself be very careful as doing it in a wrong way could result in very bad damage to your little chick.

Thanks guys!
