    Yes, the males are going to have the black mask stripe, the female does not. Include some pics so we can have a look see! :)

    I just hatched my first batch of Snowflake quail, at what age can you "color sex" ? Vent sex? (seems so rude)

    They feather sex at 12 weeks. Vent sexing does not work on bobwhites.
