Quail Eggs

I have Quail I have been raising and eating eggs from them. Anyone have an easier way to crack the eggs. They have a very tough membrane under the shell.

Re: Quail Eggs

Maybe let them set in the fridge a little longer, not sure. I do know the fresh eggs we get from the Amish we don't usually use for pickeled eggs or deviled eggs that we want to look nice to take anywhere cause fresh eggs don't peel as nice and wouldn't look very good. Something about fresh eggs not having as much air by the membrane making them harder to peel. Either that or maybe try salt in the water when you boil them.

You canít get them if you ainít in the woods!!

Re: Quail Eggs

I just hard boiled some tonight and they peeled half decent. I used a knife to get the membrane cut and it was easy from there.

I guess my next question would be is how do I tell if they are fertile?

Re: Quail Eggs

After you boil them you can put them in a bowl and cover with white vinager and it will dissolve the egg shell. Then all you have to do is remove the membrane.

If you have males and females together they will be fertile. I normally get a 80 to 85 percent hatch with a GQF 1200 incubator.
