So this is my attempt at picking out a female Button Quail, did I fail? I keep second guessing myself. I am sure about the male I picked to go with "her", but this one has me guessing : )
Also, what would you call the color of this individual?
Thank you so much!

Yes, definitely a girl! In the future, you can tell with other colors by checking the vent feathers. Males will have red, rust, or pink colored feathers, females do not. Or you could just keep getting ones that look like that one, then you know you're safe!
