    I've been think about getting quail. I had chicken last year until something got them last fall. I have been divided between chicken or quail. I know quail produce as many or more eggs than chickens but does anyone use them the same way as chickens eggs. I know quail eggs are 3- 5 times smaller than one chicken egg. I just can't picture me or my wife cracking a half a dozen eggs for breakfest to eat. Also you don't have to feed them for 5 month before you get any eggs. I guess i'm looking for some to invent a quicken. After my rambling I'm looking for anyones input on how they us their quail eggs and if they use the same way as chicken eggs.

    i wouldn't have thought that a quail egg would have that strong of an odor due to size...now DUCK EGGS are another story......as kids my sister and i broke a bunch of those in the back yard that were ooooooold....we couldn't go outside for days! ...our folks were NOT happy..[​IMG]
