    Texas A&M are just jumbo white coturnix. Raise them the same as you would any coturnix quail.

    Just raise them as you would any other quail. I had 15 of them with 35 pharaoh and they require the same things as pharaoh.

    Yep there is no difference. Just a different color and bigger... and only bigger if they are very close to pure A&M. If you just got them from a local breeder and didnt order them from james marie farms or another VERY VERY reputable breeder their genetics will be "dissolved out" to have the bigger TRUE A&M. Mainly the white coturnix are just still called that. You will see black spots in their feathers and such on their head, and maybe a few other places.

    I just got in the other day some A&M's from James Marie Farms. He did lots of work to duplicate the true A&M again so thats about as close as you can get.
