    Who all has cross Texas A&M & Coturnix Quail? Anyone that has, have you been happy with the crosses? Pics would be great as well.

    As a side note - Any one that raises Jumbo Coturnix, I'm interested in purchasing some hatching eggs, I've got standard coturnix and would like to get to a larger bird. I'd also be interested in Texas A&M Quail eggs as well.

    They are the same bird. Every tuxedo you see has been crossed with a white at some point in time. Texas A&M is a color name for a white coturnix with a wild colored spot on its head and sometimes lower back. In order to breed the A&M originally it was crossed about a million times with pharaoh colored coturnix. There are only a few places left where you can even get true A&Ms which are a large meat class bird. What most people call an A&M today is just a white quail with a spot on its head. James Marie Farms is probably your best bet regarding buying eggs.
