Last week we butchered extra chicken roos, duck drakes and 57 Jumbo Brown Coturnix roos. I had sold almost all of the quail hens and kept these guys for butchering. The roos & ducks of course took quite a while. We did them first, then caged and sat DOWN to do the quail. It was SO EASY!! We sat around, chatting and visiting, cut, bleed, skin & eviserate. It was SO fast & easy!!! I still have trouble (a lot) culling hurt chicks, so it was a bit of a revelation how EASY it was to butcher these guys. I love the breed's personality and friendliness, but it was easy and so fast!! We were down to about 3 minutes per bird by the time we finished. My husband and I had our first home raised quail meal a few nights later, curry wild rice & mushrooms baked with the quail and OH MY GOODNESS it was good!!! We're hooked big time!!! 1 1/2 birds each was MORE than enough for each of us and we are big eaters I currently have 100 chicks 1-3 weeks old in the brooders and another 100 eggs in the incubator!
