They’ll be 4 weeks tomorrow. I have my suspicions but hoping I am wrong because I require at least one layer...

I believe that both those colors would develop red feathers at the vent if they are males. It does look like they are growing in white bibs and chin straps tho, but I don’t know enough about wild pattern. I was under the impression that wild pattern only looks like yours when they’re hens, but I’m not certain so don’t get your hopes up haha.
@Ravenlover with your big book of info!

I’ve had a look at the caramel/cinnamonny one and the feathers look brown to me but I’m not sure?

I of course apologised to the birds afterwards for the manhandling

The ‘bib’ seems more like an undefined cream patch which some females seem to have, however I have seen pics of apparently confirmed males with a patchy bib like that and they’re smaller.

Until last week I was pretty darn certain the wild one was female, but those white markings are getting more prominent and they appear to have reddish feathers on the underside. I just thought I would have seen the start of blue feathers on the upper parts and black in the bib area as well by now if they were male.

So far one looks male to me as for the other not sure yet cuz morphs can get mixed , and it can still get red even within a few days it's about that age to start getting it , check there vents males have small vents

Other one looks like the recessive cinnamon and white are playing up on its morph

The cinnamon one's butt is pictured, I'll keep looking over the next 2 weeks for changes though I don't want to upset them to much. My partner has only just started trying to handle them and they were a bit spooked by him. As described the wild one looks red underneath, but I wouldn't have the experience to judge vent size.... I have never owned birds before. I have looked after chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, peafowl, bird of prey, canaries, budgies, lovebirds, cockatiels etc over the past 16 years but have never hatched anything or gotten this up close and personal! I am looking at Google images and Youtube videos but I think this is something one has to develop an eye for. Looks like as soon as these guys are ok at room temperature a few more eggs are going in their brooder and fingers crossed A that I get hens and B have a nice even number. If I fail to get hens a second time I'm not sure what to do because I'm attached to them seeing as we spend all day every day right next to eachother, but I can't keep 4 extra males when I need eggs. Fingers crossed I won't have to rehome any.

I mean there is a vacant 4ft long vivarium in the living room but the ferrets run around in there and it would probably stress them out...

That's the cinnamon one. Uuugggggggggggggggghhhhh. Looks like I'm rolling the dice again. I don't know how I am going to cope emotionally with another 17 days of anxiety. obsessively checking eggs 20 times a day. I've spent a hideous amount of money and time on hatching eggs tying to get just one single button quail hen for months @[email protected] Between multiple packages getting lost in the mail arriving damaged, my partner accidentally unplugging the incubator and al sorts of other things outside of my control I'm losing my mind...
