mmmm.... you've obviously sexed them wrong to start off with, Quail don't spontaneously change sex.

Hens will produce a small amount of secretion, possibly lubrication for egg laying, you may have confused this as male foam. But to be honest once fully mature, there should be no confusion between sexes if vent checked.

My females sometimes do slightly frothy poos before/after laying, but not the thick white foam balls like males, so Suz is probably right with the lubricant idea.
