    My dumb dad didn't make the brooder Button Quailproof. One got out
    and well, my hound instincts took over. I couldn't help myself. There was
    this timy little nugget running around. What's a dog to do? So I caught it
    and chomped it. It was tasty. Dad caught be chewing up the remains on
    the living room couch. I thought he was gonna be mad but he just shook his head,
    counted the quail (1 missing) and walked away. My mom wasn't too happy with me.

    Well Sandy...you are not alone.

    Murphy the pit bull/lab mix (who can't type as well as you so I will do it for him) spent the night in locked in the bathroom. He decided to take some of the 4 week old quail out of the brooder and nicely slobbered all over them and hide them in his dog bed. Had himself a midnight snack stashed....until Mom came along and heard "chirps" from his bed. All ok and back in brooder...I made it quail proof not dog proof. My mistake........

    Murphy would probably love to hear more ... being as he has yet to eat one....and I know he wants too. What's a bird dog to do?

    Quote:Jessica, put Murphy on the computer.

    Ok Murphy you listening? Murphy over here. Try and concentrate. I know how
    crazy you labs are.

    Ok, first catch the bird. Hold it against the roof of you mouth with your tongue.
    Find a nice place to hide. I like under the bed personally. Now savor the quails
    delicate flavor as it runs around in your mouth. If it poops well, heck, we are dogs.
    We eat poop. Once it calms down chew it up and swallow with a big gulp. I like
    to play with mine and spit it out on the couch before finally eating it but that's just
    me. Hey maybe we can get together sometimes for a little bird hunting.
