but..the ones i got wernt white meat like yours happychick, so they must not have been true Texas A&M's....(i'll need to buy some eggs off ya in the spring, because it looks like you have the true breed/line that i'm looking for! )
So..no, shes NOT cooking the books or undercooking her quail meat...
A&Ms are SUPPOSED to be white meat...
I agree. Just because someone bought their white quail who said they were A & M's, doesn't mean that they are. Since A & M's haven't been produced from the people who developed them at Texas A & M for a while, I would imagine a lot has been lost through non-selective breeding by now. I look forward to seeing more pictures. Maybe there's a reason why they guy happychick charges so much for his hatching eggs. Also, it would be nice if someone else here that claims they have white breasted A & M's would post pictures. BTW, except for the elusive white meat A & M, coturnix quail are considered a dark meat bird even if dove, ducks, etc. have darker meat.
