I have a hard time sexing blue faced tuxedo buttons. I think its a male ,but I want your opinions
i really have no idea, but what an awesome looking bird.
Its Not Color Sexable
Quote:yea i think i remember quaillady saying something to me when i bought my buttons off her, that the whites and the "penguin" ones you can't....
maybe something about they don't have red around vents either...
tho i really don't know.
Boy is he cute though. Love the tuxedos!
The Splashes and some tuxedos have the red vents. If your tuxedo doesn't have any coloring around the vent I would say hen.
No red coloring around the vent ,however "he" is smaller then my other hens and does have a very strong crow/contact call ,compaired to the hens.
He's a blue face ,so he shouldnt have a red vent ,right ??
Doesn't Buttons have the Foam Pocket the same a Cots???
Ya ,but venting them is no fun They struggle and spaz worse then a coturnix.
I did flip him to see his belly and I think I saw foam...
I haven't had buttons give out foam. They are not coturnix so the foam is not an indicator. I looked in my breeder pens, some of my blue face tux males have red vents, others do not. If your cbbq is slimmer and crowing, it's a boy. The vent is smaller than a laying hen which looks more open.
