    I have silver tuxedo, wild tuxedo and cinnamon tuxedo button quail as well as some other colors like silver, black faced red breasted (I think). I need help sexing them, especially the silver tuxedo. The silver tuxedo will not have red vent feathers so how do you tell. Also, will the wild tuxedo and cinnamon tuxedo have red vent feathers if they are male?

    Silver button quail will get peachy colored vents and bellies. With the tuxes it really depends on their markings. If it goes far enough down their sides you might be able to see the rust/ peachy color depending on the variety of tux.

    If you look carefully you can hopefully see the peachy coloring on his underside.
