Is partridge meat meant to smell?

Got a couple of partridges from butcher for doing a three bird roast and they do seem to smell. Is this normal with game bird meat?

I've only ever noticed it smelling if it's been damaged when shot then hung for a while
I'm not scared to be seen, I make no apologies. This is me!


Yoghurt has a strong yeasty savory smell to it instead of a nice sour
