Default Anyone keep quail?

Been keeping quail for a few months now and finally got around to processing a few. Takes all of 30 to 60 seconds to do them. I just seasoned with salt, onion powder, garlic powder and some Mrs. Dash since I didn't have any pepper. Seared for a few minutes on each side and then finished at 350 in the toaster oven for 10 min. This is just a baseline. I'll get into brining, bacon drapes, stuffing and rotisserie action later.

My buddy does a few pheasant, but they are a bit bigger, 3-4 lbs.
He usually does them like Cornish hens, in other words, I have no idea how he preps them.

But, damn, they're tasty!

Forgot to mention they were awesome! Right now I have over 50, but a lot of the are females and I am selling/eating the eggs. We incubated 50 eggs and about 42 of the hatched. I might have lost 1 or 2 out of those 42. Pretty impressive.

That's a pretty decent average! A lot of people can't do that with chickens.

You need to start keeping these Joe. They are awesome. I think incubation period is 18 days, then they are laying at 4 to 6 weeks. A girl that used to work at my lab works at a couple of the restaurants downtown on the weekends. I am going to pitch the idea of supplying the Cuban restaurant with these guys. Could be lucrative.

I know I can't. Lol! I just think it's cool to be able to just walk outside and grab about 5 or 6 and processes them in under 10 minutes. I really want to start growing meal worms. They love those suckers. Thinking about doing it in some old bath tubs I have.

Lol, stop.
I can't keep up with the animals we have now!
Lacey does the birds, and she's got her hands full with our new addition! Besides, no Cubans here, lol.
All b's aside, quail, and pheasant for that matter, have taken a big hit up here in the last 20 years. A few few released every year can do wonders for the wild population.

Lol! I hear ya! I need another new animal like I need another hole in the head. My wife's father used to keep Bobwhite just for that reason. I've had mine call in a few wild ones too. They have a cool sounding call.

You're tougher than me,lol. We do have some big coons up here, but the babies are less fatty, and more tender.


So I've been told anyway

The coon I had was pretty good, but I think I could have prepared it much better though. Not that I'm any kind of skilled cook or anything, but there was a lot of room for improvement.

This ol girl had a lot of fat. But the critter will no longer be digging under the barn. I tried one a few years back, but it didn't turn out too good. I think this one will be tasty.

Yep. The pheasant population has declined a lot. We used to go hunting a ton. Fuggin hawks around our farm keep pheasant, quail, grouse, and rabbits thinned out...

Can we talk about the fact that you don't have any pepper?! What sad state of affairs is this???

Otherwise, looks good! I've raised and released bobwhite on our property, but I have yet to raise any for our use....just what I need, another animal project. 😂

Yeah, I was wondering about the no pepper thing also. I think I have at least four different kinds of pepper in my spice rack.

I miss hunting rabbits.

My spice cabinets are a pain to navigate because I have so many! I am so busy half the time, I can't spend more than 1 minute looking for something before I have to improvise. Lol!
