Does anyone know how to order from the University the
white Pharoah quail? How do they do in the wintertime?
Howlong is the incubation period for eggs? Can you get
the eggs from A&M?

thanks!!!! Charline

Texas A&m Dismantled That Program Many Years Ago. They Are Not In The Quail Business Anymore.
They Are A Strain Of Coturnix--- Check Out The Sticky Post At The Top Of The Section For Lots Of General Information On Coturnix. They Are As Rule Quite Hardy In Winter, Incubation Is Like Any Other Coturnix 16-19 Days In Most Cases.

The Texas A&M coturnix project ended way back in the late 60's early 70's and it failed, because our kids are not eating "Coturnix McNougets" The goal was to produce a chicken replacement based on a mutant coturnix genome. It failed! It's 2010 people!

How far have we come?

I know this guy, that knew a roommates third cousin, that has the real A&M strain......BULL! I get beat up all over the board when I say BULL, but.....BULL!!!!!!

To the OP: Coturnix are delightful birds known by many (THAT ACTUALLY) raise them as fast growing,semi-picky poultry, that hatch and grow pretty fast. Nothing more, and they taste exactly like...COTURNIX

NO THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANCE TO THIS. THE A&M GOT ITS FINAL COLORING FROM THE ENGLISH WHITE. BOTH STRAINS APPROX 90% OR SO WILL HAVE COLOR SPOTS ON THEM, THE REMAINING FEW WILL NOT.

Thanks JJM. I've been doing some reading and researching since my post and found a lot of useful info. I sure was hoping for a sex indicator with them. LOL With only hatching 4 of them, I sure don't want to set up a winter cage for only a pair if that's how it turns out.
