    We are raising quail for eggs for a few reasons:

    *they are really cute devilled
    *they are the perfect size for my small children, who think it's a riot to eat the tiny eggs fried
    *my son, who is sensitive to chicken eggs, is not sensitive to quail eggs
    *quail are more efficient than chickens at producing eggs, when comparing them lb for lb.

    There's a fun link with info about quail eggs. I just googled it, so I don't know how accurate it is, but it's interesting.
