An interesting case of polyandrous specie. Where the female is larger, nicer coloration and makes the mating call to the male. She builds nest, calls for a male, lay eggs and leave the hatching and raising of the chicks to the male. She then moves on to another nest and calls for another male. Sometimes fighting off other females for territory.
Which makes the keeping of these female specimens interesting as they could be used to call and attract other quails, male (for mating) and female (territorial).

Sequential polyandry....
