Short summary
The aim of the study was to compare carcass composition and physicochemical and sensory attributes of breast and leg meat from native Mexican guajolote (Meleagris g. gallopavo) as influenced by sex. The results showed that, from a nutritional point of view, the meat from male guajolotes was preferable to that from females.
