Squab is a young pigeon, harvested at an age before taking flight. It consists of
dark-meat, like duck and goose, yet the meat is exceptionally far more tender - has been described as having a "silky" texture, as it is very tender and fine-grained.
Each weighs about 3/4-1 pound; 23% Bone.
Higher in protein and iron compared to chicken or turkey.
Rich in phosphorus & vitamin B12.
Squab is known to be one of the most easily digestible of all meats.
"No one farms squab to make a fortune. The birds’ notorious sensitivity prevents using modern poultry techniques, like those employed in the factory farming of chickens, to produce enormous flocks at minimal costs. They respond poorly to artificial insemination and inferior-quality feeds laced with animal by-products.
Farm-raised pigeons must have the same food year-round. Their nesting cubbies must never be disturbed. For this reason, the cost of squab, which has remained constant for decades, is expensive relative to mass-marketed chickens. It’s a whole lot of bother to raise good squab. But these succulent birds make a feast fit for a king." - D'Artagnan
