Their diet is primarily composed of grains and seeds. However, younger partridges in their first few weeks rely on protein-rich insects such as worms, spiders, and ants.

Partridge Meat Quality Standards

This text dives into the various factors influencing the quality of partridge meat, particularly the Chukar partridge. Here's a breakdown of the key points:

Factors Affecting Quality:

  • Age, nutrition, genetics: These factors influence muscle development and overall meat quality.
  • Diet, storage, and slaughter conditions: These practices can significantly impact the final product.

Quality Analysis:

The text explores various quality parameters assessed in partridge meat, measured 24 hours after slaughter:

  1. pH: This measures meat acidity. A higher pH (less acidic) indicates a shorter shelf life due to increased microbial growth. Partridge meat typically falls within a moderate pH range.
  2. Shear Force: This reflects meat tenderness. Partridge meat exhibits lower shear force compared to chickens of a similar age, suggesting greater tenderness.


        3.Water Holding Capacity (WHC): This parameter indicates how well meat retains moisture. Partridge meat demonstrates a                     higher WHC than chicken, meaning it retains more juices and has better sensory qualities.

        4.Meat Color: Color influences consumer perception of freshness. Partridge meat color depends on the bird's genetic ability to                  produce pigments and the deposition of carotenoids. Factors like brightness, redness, and yellowness are considered.

         5.Intermuscular Fat (IMF): This fat content within muscles impacts texture and juiciness. Genetics and production systems i i                     influence IMF levels. While IMF helps retain moisture, it can negatively correlate with overall moisture content.


The text emphasizes pH as a crucial indicator of partridge meat quality. A moderate pH range is ideal.

Additional Notes:

  • The document focuses on evaluating partridge meat after slaughter and doesn't cover selecting birds at the store.
