I have about 30 button Quail eggs in the incubator right now that are due to hatch either the 30th or the 1st. I can only keep two pairs of them for breeding. I was wondering how soon you can tell the sex of them? Once i can tell the sex and can seperate my two pairs i will need to get rid of the rest. I dont know how many extra there will be, but I will have free button Quail as soon as i can sex them!

It normally takes 4-5 weeks maybe even 6 weeks to tell the male from female. And all the different colors to moult out into adult plumage. And whites...you gotta wait for the roo to crow and the hen to lay an egg
