It may be two diff breeds of quail. Im more concerned that it may have two copies of the reccsive gene that causes the white color, which would make it weaker. The seller was very poor quality not at all like when i bought from you
and i wouldnt be surprised if its even the result of siblings interbreeding.
i know youve never had quail, thank you so much for coming here, i really appreciate your constant support so much!
Not to be rude but you really don't understand what you are talking about. "Texas A&Ms" are just jumbo white coturnix. Nothing more. There are different color phases of coturnix but they are not in any way different breeds. Pharaoh, golden, tibetan, rosetta, silver, etc are all just different colors of coturnix. You can't "cross breed" something if it's the exact same species.
The link you gave is for chukar partridge and bobwhite quail. Only one of those is a quail although it's not from the same scientific family as coturnix. Coturnix can only hybridize with chickens, they cannot hybridize with other species of quail, including bobwhites, valleys, gambels, blue scaled, chinese, rain, harlequin or any of the other many species of quail.
