Please help me to post a topic with sexing pictures!

Post by QueenieQ on Sat Jun 14, 2008 11:00 pm

I'm glad this is the 'daft questions' area!

I'll try again:

I have a new pair of Quail, I think they are a gingery female and a darker male. Can anyone tell me if this is right?

[takes deep breath and hopes it works this time!]

Female?


Male?

Hi,

Can't seem to see two photo's, but the top one is a golden (Italian) male.

If you could have another go at posting a photo, then it will be sexed correctly.

</A>Derek thank you so much! I'll try popping the other picture below. As I had an egg today, I'm guessing this must be the female?

Hi Queenie,

Sorry thats not working for me neither. But if you've had an egg today, then this other bird must be female.

" /></A>One last try. I'm really glad you're both online. I was sold the golden male as a female and only picked up the other quail today to keep it company as he hadn't laid an egg! I guess my supplier has difficulties sexing them too!

Yep, male and then female as everyone has said.

You'll probably need to get another couple of hens as the male birds do rather over-do the attention they give and the hens don't like it!

I think you're right - he does seem to enjoy yanking the feathers on her neck a little bit toooo much...

It's great to know for sure. I just went in to feed them and distracted him so that she can get a good feed in. He's amazing - he loves being stroked on his back and becomes quite mesmerised!
