    White coturnix, which are not really Texas A&M's, are not feather sexable. You'll have to either wait till one crows, or try look'n up their skirt (vent sexing)... BTW, I would recommend get'n a six pack and wait'n for the crow.... They should start crow'n at around 5 weeks. When one crows, put a zip tie loose on his ankle. All roos get zip ties... FYI Texas A&M's were brown birds when they left Texas A&M decades ago....

    It's too soon to sex them yet. I would wait until 6 weeks at least for the Texas A and M/Jumbo White birds.

    They were not plain white, they looked white with the same patterning as bob whites the pattern was black, the gentleman who had them I belive has been breeding for well over 10 or more years. He said they were called snowflakes. He said they were not very common,
