I have heard that the Texas A&M quail are a mix between Bobwhite and Coturnix quail. Does anyone know if this is a fact or just an assumption? I just saw a post on Ebay for eggs and the seller says that they are a mix between the two species. I seems that there might be some truth to this since the meat is white; unlike the other coturnix breeds. If this is a fact, would the laws that govern quail possession apply to these quail just like they do with Bobwhites? I have about 20 birds that are beautiful and healthy. Some have not quit laying eggs since last Spring even though the temps are low and the days are short. They are certainly easy to care for and disease resistant.
