    I bought a pair of King quail / button quail.

    The supposed to be female Brown one started calling making noise. I read female don't really make noise but male call. I also read that female are usually bigger but my brown one is obviously smaller. I just want to be sure because they are housed together. I'm worried they'll start fighting? They seem to like each other sitting together quiet a lot.

    Also found video on YouTube with the calling sound. Video said their one was female. So I'm confused.

    Please see photo. https://imgur.com/gallery/WwcRn

    Her call is identical to this video.

    I have to say I don't know anything about quails so I'm not going to be able to assist you
