Keeping Quail

This is Shrimpy, one of the latest of my Japanese Quail chicks to hatch, just a few days old and not much bigger than a piece of clover! This is by far my favourite stage of quail breeding because they’re so tiny and very sweet. In a couple of months Shrimpy will be laying delicious eggs for me to use in my sushi, but in the meantime her older sisters have that covered.

Quails eggs are used extensively in Japanese cooking. Japanese quail are one of the most common breeds and seemed to be the appropriate choice.
