    I think it's too early, and I'm not sure if you can tell f from m with these colours variations (before they're mature) but thought I'd ask.

    These photos are Sugar (the one looking at the camera in the second photo).

    This is Cream (the bird in front in the second photo).

    Thanks! They're my first and I'm loving them.

    Unless they are of the brown ( jumbo Browns, Pharos ) coloration you will only be able to tell by vent sexing and they are still to young for that.

    Yeah, I was wondering about that. There's a thread on here that shows Coturnix variations and it showed m & f of a few others like Manchurian & Italian so I thought Cream & Sugar might be possible, but I wasn't counting on it.
