Texas AM'S

Post by sprinter on Thu Sep 18, 2008 7:53 pm

Hi,
thought i would drop in a quick daft queston myself, i have been looking on ebay and came across this
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/12-Texas-A-M-Jumbo-Quail-hatching-eggs_W0QQitemZ200255436158QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item200255436158&_trkparms=72%3A12|39%3A1|66%3A2|65%3A12|240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14
now i am quite prepared to be wrong but i thought Texas AM were white with brown bits, can they also be completely brown like the ones in the picture or has someone been mislead.

I dont want any as my texam AM eggs arrived safely from Riverside this morning

Thanks

Texas A&M were originally developed in brown (wild colour).

They were subsequently bred with "English white" (as the Americans call white), to produce birds with lighter coloured skins favoured by the food industry there.

I personally prefer the brown ones Very Happy
