wingstone, we have to process quail, any suggestions? have decide to just have the husband pull the heads off, but still don't know whether to pluck or skin, when growing up and had wild quail, we always plucked, but then we didn't have 37 at a time.
Is it possible to put sand in the brooder box with them? I know the nest is hay or straw, but if the underflooring and area around the nest is a coarse material it will help it with traction.
I am like wing... I rarely interfere beyond maybe some 'save-a-chick' or brown sugar water via drops from a syringe when they are slow starters, DH sometimes brings them in and puts them in a brooder box under a heat lamp if a major problem. So I am not a very good resource for chicken medical issues....
we do have a plucker , would that work for a quail? we thought that the plucker would maybe beat them up too bad, i love it for the chickens tho, thats why we made one, hand plucking was getting hard on my hands, good ole arthritis , could only do three, maybe four chickens a day. maybe i should just do four or five at a time and hand pluck, a good fried up quail is hard to beat taste wise if i remember correctly. but i don't want the quail to suffer so maybe the kitchen shears would be better for dispatching.
