Sorry Alex...this is totally untrue! 14 ounce coturnix are few and far between. I can gin-up their weight by light denial, feed them stuff that's bad for them, and generally create a big fat unhealthy bird, for the sake of creating a big fat bird. Under normal production methods, even the most highly developed "JUMBO" strains of coturnix will never reach 14 oz. at 7 weeks of age. Anyone that tells you they do, doesn't own a $5 set of scales, and a 2 cent paper lunch bag to weigh them in.
