    If you use fresh quail eggs

    shelleyd2008 writes: Where does it cut at? Would it work for boiled eggs or just fresh? It just takes a small slice off the top of the egg. It would be used just for opening fresh eggs. Here are a couple of photos of what you are left with which should tell the story.

    Coturnix Quail Basics- Information and Pictures Galore
