Careful with the quail. They can fly. Drum found out yesterday. We now have wild
quail in our woods.
What do you do with quail?
Will they come back for food? Should I call the authorities on you?
Quote:Quail make great pets and they are an absolute delicacy. Think of a tastier and smaller
cornish hen. A processed Cortunix quail is maybe 8 oz but it by far the best bird meat
I have eaten.
Plus they only take 8 weeks to get to full size, don't eat much, don't really smell, don't
make noise, & don't take much space.
Quote:Drum tells me it was a male but he may just be covering himself. They should survive
in the wild, especially here where bird seed and chicken feed is plentiful all year long.
I tried to find it but it's long gone. You can call the authorities but I'll just claim insanity
and they won't argue that.
is it hard to process a bird that small? delicacy aside, that sounds like the ideal single serving portion. i'm the only meat eater in my family. are they hard to raise? wheels spinning...
Quote:Actually no, when we processed the quail on Sunday it was much easier then a chicken. Just snip the head off, pluck and PC literally pulled all the guts out with one finger.
