    I use a really sharp paring knife a slight sawing motion works for me

    I bop them gently with a sharp knife, then pierce it with the tip of the knife to get through the membrane.

    There are also special scissors sold just for opening quail eggs. A friend of mine has a pair and says they work very well. She ordered them somewhere online.

    Quote:when i give them to my dogs they roll them around on the floor for awhile and lick the egg that drips out ( i crack the eggs 1st) then after they have made a nice sticky mess with egg and all they chew them up and swallow them down...hehehehe

    I get a kick out of watching the dog chomp down & egg oozing out the sides of the mouth. [​IMG] Crunchy outside ...gooey center [​IMG]

    More than likely that link would be similar to what she has - I haven't actually seen her set. I was thinking of ordering one, though...
