The aim of the study was to establish the fatting capacity and the meat quality of the combined meat+eggs White English breed and to compare with the same of the meat Faraon breed. Logically, the live weight of 31-day old male Faraon-birds was by 5,9 % higher and of the female ones – by 7,9 % compared to the birds of White English

breed. Feed conversion ratio for the experimental period 3-31 days for the White English quails was to 9,95% less effective, compared to the Faraon birds. The meat of Faraon quails contained more dry matter and protein compared to the meat of White English breed. Fat content in the quail bodies of White English breed was signifi cantly lower compared to Faraon breed -Р≤0,05-. Quail meat of White English breed was characterized by its better capacity for

technological processing due to the lower loss of moisture – by 18,8 % for breast and 22,4 % for leg muscles -Р≤0,05-. The established results characterize the combined White English breed as suitable for producing both of eggs and meat from quails.
