Well, the boys are at their grandmother's, hubby's at work, and I couldn't sleep, so, I decided that while I have some uninterrupted time, I'd process the quail. It was so much easier than I had expected, just time consuming. I was planning on saving the skin, so I had plucked darn near the entire bird, then gave up and skinned it. I'm too OCD to pluck a bird. Hopefully it'll still taste nummy. Since I had burnt dinner literally to a crisp (thankfully I was only cooking for hubby and I) because I had fallen asleep, we'll just eat barbeque quail tomorrow instead of remaking barbeque chicken. Nom, nom, nom. And... the killing part wasn't so bad, once you bonk them, the head falls back and makes it quick and easy to cut the head before they come to. Can't wait to try our first quail meat. I'll have to go process the rest of the boys now, I just had to post, I'm proud of myself, lol. BTW, for others who have processed, is it always that hard to skin the back right above the tail?! That skin was like super glued to the darned meat!
