I butchered my first quail... Thanks to the vodka I felt pretty confidant, I knew I was raising these birds for meat, and I knew I'd have to be the one who does the dispatching because DH said it's YOUR hobby, you do it... So I did. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be! My only regret is that my kitchen shears are apparently a little dull... I did the bop and top meathod, but it took me 4 cuts!! and the poor guy seemed to know... Well anyways, I'm sure I'll be a little less clumsy next time, and for tonight, Our first taste of quail!!
