    I have coturnix quails (hatch 8/5). How can I tell who is a roo? I have 5 in this bunch and 5 in another bunch from another breeder about 20 days younger. Id like to figure out who's male

    Id also like to combine them when the younger reach similar size. Is this going to be possible? If so, how do you suggest I go about this with the least conflict between the birds?
