We did 17 quail and 7 old layers on saturday(butchering). It is nice to have quail with their skin on. I know the crock pot only makes broth. With quail the broth is between chicken and beef. It was a shame to do that to those 6 but live and let the wife have the last say. SORRY CAP!


I think we need to cook sans anything, seeing we are just starting out. That way we can really appreciate them. Tin foil and 300 till they are done.

I made Drunken Quail, Fried them in butter til browned, placed them in a baking dish, in the pan I added 8oz of chopped porteblellas, 1/2 cup of sherry and 2 cups of stock (used the quail stock created from the first quail crock pot recipe) and 3 TBS of flour boiled 15 minutes and then added it to the baking dish with the quail and baked @ 350 for 1 hour, served on a bed of wild/brown rice. Good stuff. sorry no pictures.
