    I've had it for a few weeks, how do I tell gender? It's a full sized adult, but I'm confused as to what it could be....I also have a few wite and brown cortunix crosses I'm wondering about...I can post pics if needed.

    Take a picture of the front side of the Brown coturnix and I can tell you.

    Now with the White ones you have to wait and see if they start to crow, females will make more of a cricket noise, males sound like a dying cow duck goose, as how I would describe it. And then there is Vent sexing.

    Okay! I'm pretty sure it's a female. I haven't heard it do much of anything . And I'll get a pic of the all brown one

    Wait for eggs or listen for crowing.
