Hi all!
So I have 7 5 weeks old button quails and need help on sexing 2 (well 3, but one is white so I know there is no way I can sex him for now)
One is tuxedo the other one....no idea
The tuxedo has no red feathers around the vent, and the other one seems to have the beginning of a bib? I have no idea of his color so I don’t know if females can have it too in that color...Also he is way smaller than the other one because since he is born he does not grow fast, that’s why he is in a different cage with a friend
Any help is appreciated 😁

Looks like your Tuxedo has some feathers on their underside that may 'rust up' but I could be seeing it wrong, best bet is waiting until it's older in my opinion! :D the other speckled one however appears to be feathering in like a female, looks like she may have some white/pied genes which can cause bibs occasionally :)

Not sure quite yet but they’re really cute! 🥰
Also I love your profile picture! It’s a barny right? (Barnevelder) I have one that looks exactly like it. 😆
