Hi, I have been party to a discussion about what species of quail are farmed and sold for meat in Australia. Someone reckons the farmed quail have been bred from indigenous species, someone else reckons they are King Quail. Does anyone know the 'real facts'?

This arose in the context of a discussion about preserving native grasslands.

Thanks - David
