The Coturnix Quail is without a doubt the easiest to raise and are ready to eat between six to eight weeks of age. This makes them the cheapest to raise also. They're a little on the small side, around five ounces of fat free meat. However, there are two genetically altered specie that make a better meal. The Jumbo Brown which can get up to sixteen ounce and the Texas A&M which is around ten ounces. Because they mature in about one third of the time it takes other quail. The Coturnix is very popular for eating purposes. The Video shows a Texas A&M being slaughtered.
