Yes I have, and it took forever to peel the shells off, and not much egg left!
I was willing~~~but really way way toooo much hard work.
I went to a little place to eat, and they had them on the menu with something else.....
Oh, my lord, it's a massacre!!!

I bought a dozen from the egg farmer. I have never had them before and am quite curious about the taste. They are really tiny though.
I have never tried quail eggs, but will try anything once. I have no idea how you would prepare them.
I don't think I could be bothered preparing them at home.. too much work.. However if I saw them on a menu I would give them a try

No. I would try them though. Like others, I've no idea how to prepare them.

No. How many would you eat in one dish? They look tiny!
I keep three quail that I hatched from eggs my Mum posted from North Qld. I get three quail eggs a day.
I regularly eat quail eggs. For a recipe three quail eggs equals one chook egg. I have boiled them or have had them fried on rice Asian style. They are tasty eggs,and in Japan, people believe they have different medicinal properties that Chicken eggs don't possess. I read that botulism doesn't grow on a them so they are safe for pregnant women to have raw, as in mayonnaise, but I wouldn't risk it until I had more definitive information. They are a good size for my dog who is a Westie. She doesn't have the bad smelling wind that she gets with chook eggs.
Unlike chook eggs the shell is thin and the membrane under it is strong. They can be fiddly to peel but there are YouTube videos that show you how to do it. Rather than cracking the shell you almost tear it. I boil mine for 1 1/2 minutes for a salad.
No. I wouldn't even know where to buy them!
No, I've never had them either. I've only eaten quail, but not quail eggs.

No, I've never tried quail eggs, I don't understand how you can enjoy such a small egg.
Diana the egg tastes very nice. Not a lot different from chook eggs but they look so beautiful boiled and in a salad or sitting fried on top of food. They are bite size and I think children would love them.
The uncracked egg is beautiful with many variations to the shells.
As they are a tiny bird they would be much more suited to the small backyards most people have. They are sweet pets that lay an egg most days.

No, never tried these
by Finy
No, I've never had quail eggs, and quite honestly I don't see the advantage on such a small egg! I know they use them in the cooking shows such as Masterchef, but apart from that did people actually use them?
No, I've never had quail eggs, I look at them they are so small, I don't understand the fascination people have with them, I guess it may be a trend that starts with those cooking shows like masterchef!
