Its fairly easy to tell the difference between male and female quails. The colour markings and body size generally give it away.
We'll look at the Coturnix also known as Japanese or Pharaoh quail. The male has a distinct rusty, reddish chest. The female has a white chest with mottled black.
Females are generally heavier with a broader chest, males are slim in appearance. Males also have a distinct call, and are often running around attempting to mate with
females which lay the eggs.
