I know nothing about quail, but have been thinking about trying something other than chickens. Are they the same thing as pheasants? Do they dress out like partridge does...just step on the wings and pull on the feet? Are they pretty much the same as partridge? What are the differences? How do you dress out quail? I know, stupid questions, but I would really like to know! Thanks!

They are in the scientific name of "Galforms (sp?) and im pretty sure pheasants are in that category as well as grouse and what not.

It's too bad you're so far away, I'd buy some from you! haha! I just found out that you can just step on the wings and pull the feet. You're left with the breast on a set of wings. Very easy...
