    Why do people have Quail? Are there any befits to having Quail?

    Quail are great for breeding and preserving lines, meat, and eggs. They make great pets too!

    the rice is regular yellow rice cooked in a steamer.
    the quail over the rice, I simmered down in a crockpot with bbq sauce for 4-5 hours.
    the pickled eggs, there are some great recipes around, I used Dirk's recipe posted around here somewhere with some added beet juice for the coloring.

    If you have one get out when there is snow on the ground, you can hone your tracking skills.
