Where To Get Quail and Quail Eggs

Sharing is caring!

Today there are two ways of getting quail on the table – 1) you can go hunting and hope that you are lucky enough to find a covey and are a good marksman, and 2) you can buy it.  While many opt for the first option, I prefer the second.  After all, shotgun pellets are not “good eats.”

Quail and quail eggs are considered a delicacy in many cultures.  In the United States, quail is often reserved for special occasions or after successful hunts.  That is starting to change since quail is available at grocery stores and online.

I was sent a sampler package of quail products from Manchester Farms.  The first item my family tried was the bacon wrapped quail legs.  My husband grilled the little meaty morsels for a few minutes and they came out beautifully (see picture above).  Oh. My. Goodness!

In addition to the legs, I received frozen whole quail.  They were semi-boneless came with V-shaped pins in them to keep the body cavity spread apart while grilling.
