Quail eggs how do you use them.

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

I've been think about getting quail. I had chicken last year until something got them last fall. I have been divided between chicken or quail. I know quail produce as many or more eggs  than chickens but does anyone use them the same way as chickens eggs. I know quail eggs are 3- 5 times smaller than  one chicken egg. I just can't picture me or my wife cracking a half a dozen eggs for breakfest to eat. Also you don't have to feed them for 5 month before you get any eggs.  I guess i'm looking for some to invent a quicken.  After my rambling I'm looking for anyones input on how they us their quail eggs and if they use the same way as chicken eggs.
