Hi, I am new here (and new to raising birds in general!) my family is on our first coturnix quail hatch and we’re a bit confused as to how to sex our quail. I was wondering if any of you could help me with sexing and figuring out the color of our quail? Thanks.

They are all three weeks old today, which i’ve heard is when you start seeing differences in their plumage. Please help me figure this out! I can provide better pictures if needed.

Unfortunately, it looks like you got colours that aren't feather sexable. You're going to have to wait until they're old enough to vent sex or they start laying or crowing.

That’s unfortunate. Thanks anyway, though. I’m hoping there’s only one (or better, zero) male because we really wouldn’t have enough females in there to prevent fights breaking out
