Yeah, one tries not to think too hard about it when you are doing it, Dave.

That's probably more graphic information than I needed.

Chicken sexing is a major speciality. A career in fact. As you'd expect.

Cockadoodledoo!...you know what I mean?

 In contrast, I can sex goldfish. Not much call for that, though.

Yeah Andrew that can happen, but I vent sexed them all and put a dob of pink nailpolish on heads of suspected males and checked them the next day before butchering the smallest ones. The males have a sort of lump as well. I hadnt really looked into feather sexing. Have 85 eggs ready to go into incubator going to get two more days and hopefully set 115 on tuesday night. I need more as there are none left in the freezer.

Thanks Doug.  Even vent sexing goes wrong occasionally.  If a female has been recently mounted, she'll expel foam.

Didn't know there were so many different types/colours of Japanese quails. Thanks for posting.
