In a study conducted on a total of 30 males and females of Bobwhite quail, Colinus virginianus species, was monitored to determine the average results at slaughter at 70 weeks of age. As a result of the research carried out was determined an average body weight similar in the two sexes, of 245.00 ± 2.35 g/head in the female, while in male was of 250.00 ± 2.65 g/head, and the weight of the carcase after evisceration was 170.00 ± 2.35 g for females and of 167.00 ± 2.05 g in males. The yield was of 68.16 ± 1.75 % in females and of 68.00 ± 1.25% in males, the difference was not significant. The average breast weight was of 87.00 ± 1.05 g in females and less with 2.3% in males, of 85.00 ± 1.13 g, the difference being statistically not ensured. The average proportion of the chest was 52.10 ± 1.55% in females and of 50.00 ± 1.05% in males.
