Sexing White Quail ?

Post by dean_cwmbran on Tue Jul 31, 2007 7:22 pm

Hi all

Ive just hatched out quite a few White Quail and they are now 5/6 weeks old and one or two are starting to be a little dominant Any ideas on best method of sexing at this age? I have tried the foam test on a few but proves inconclusive or maybe they are a little too young yet.

Any advice appreciated.

I'm afraid that I'm useless Embarassed I have to wait until their near POL before I can tell them apart. My daughter and I spent an hour yesterday comparing the rear ends Shocked of whites & normal to see if we could figure out what we had, but I'm still none the wiser scratch
