I was wondering if someone had some good instructions on cleaning/butchering quail?
I have Bobwhites and I've processed a few. I used a kitchen shears to take their heads off, then I went ahead and skinned them as opposed to plucking feathers - they're just so tiny and it was super-easy to skin them. I cut the wings off completely since there wasn't much meat on them. Gutting was pretty easy, even with them being small, I could still get my fingers in there and remove everything. They were good - tasted like chicken to me and the kids thought they were really cool since they were so tiny. Hope that helps!
So did you kill them with the kitchen shears, or remove the head after?
