Quail eggs come from medium-sized birds found in Europe, North Africa, Asia, and the southern United States. They are white and tan with dark brown speckling, and they are smaller than chicken eggs.
Rich in protein. Quail eggs are a great source of protein, which is important for many processes in your body. Proteins are made up of “building blocks" called amino acids. Your body uses these amino acids to build and repair muscles and bones and to make hormones and enzymes. They can also be used as an energy source.
Factory-farmed eggs are unhealthy and often contain harmful chemicals. Conventionally raised eggs come from chickens that live in cramped, dirty conditions and are fed an unnatural diet.
Green Wings Ranch is a family farm that raises free-range quail on rotated pastures. Our birds eat a natural diet of bugs, seeds, and plants, which makes for delicious and nutritious eggs.
A quail is a small bird in the pheasant family, that measures less than nine inches long and nests on the ground.
They have brown speckled feathers, and their meat and eggs have been part of European cuisine for centuries.
Quail eggs are tiny, about a fourth the size of a chicken egg, and are considered a delicacy in many countries.
Ounce for ounce, quail eggs has more folate and vitamin B12 than chicken eggs, and nearly twice the iron, thiamin, and riboflavin.
Because they have a greater ratio of egg yolk to egg white, they are also higher in protein, fat, and phosphorus.
However, it takes about 5 quail eggs to equal 1 chicken egg in volume, so you need to eat a lot of quail eggs before this extra nutrition adds up.
Quail eggs can be cooked in any way you would make chicken eggs: fried, scrambled, hard-boiled, deviled, etc.
The cooking times and temperatures of standard egg dishes need to be adjusted to avoid overcooking the whites, because there is less white volume than in chicken eggs, and the eggshells are much harder to crack.
