WHOAH! haven't ever seen anything like that before! It almost looks like more of a chicken to me but at the same time it still has all the physical features of a quail chick??? is there any possibility that poultry of some kind could have gotten in and bred with your quail? or the only other explanation i could give is that your bloodlines  are too close and you could have bred some kind of mutation into them? i dont know really im just guessing but  some of the older members or breeders might have seen something like this before

  y1       I get them like that from one set of my breeders.  That set is a A&M roo with three Jumbo Brown Coturnix.  I probably have around eleven of them currently.

Yes, the white is purely a colour mutation so there's no reason why they can't breed.  The white gene in coturnix (Wh) is recessive and can be masked by dominant colours such as wild type & range, but breeding white's to white's guarantee's producing around 75% white offspring.

Just because a coturnix chick is white doesn't mean its an A&M as basically whites or English whites as their known in American have been around long before the A&M strain of coturnix was even developed.

A&M's were only developed Fifteen years ago, when Experiment Station researchers and Extension poultry science specialists sought to improve the quail industry by genetically enhancing the blood lines of selected heavier meat birds. The resulting Texas A&M Gourmet Quail were developed by Extension specialists, including Fred Thornberry, who received several eggs from a Japanese quail producer.

For 2 years and six generations, Thornberry’s birds were crossbred with each other  to eliminate carcass abnormalities and make them more uniform in size. These quail were genetically selected for large body size, conformation and increased meat yield at 6 to 7 weeks of age. With the goal of enhancing the quail for the gourmet industry, Thornberry was able to improve the birds’ breast musculature while maintaining their optimum egg production.

More recently, Extension specialist Lee Cartwright crossed the recessive white gene into the improved line to yield a large-bodied Japanese quail without the unappealing pigmentation in the skin and internal membranes.
