on cpq the male will have a white bib, except on white birds where you cant tell the differance, also males will not eat mealworms, they take them but dont eat them, they save them for the girls..

3-4 girls per male or the girls will get rather fed up of him and die :(

About what size are they Jackie? cpq are tiny - italian are much bigger.

At a guess I would say they are about 6" in length and about 4" high at a guess

I will get some more hens tomorrow as know a lady very local that has some, hence why I wanted to tell the difference as she cant tell :?

I couldnt get anymore today, as this other person only had 1 hen left.

Sound more like italian size to me hun.

 

Here's a couple of piccies of my italian layers with the guineas and rabbits for size comparison.

Both quail in these pics are hens.
