Quail eggs have been known in centuries for their health benefits in Asia but they have been accessible to only a few select : mainly the emperors and their close courtiers.

In recent years quail has become the concern of commercial farming and people have been introduced to the miraculous nutritional qualities of the quail eggs. Still, getting to buy fresh quail eggs was not easy and the main consumption was of their pickled form.

As the demand grew, producers found the way to come closer to the consumers -- I made a surprising find by coming upon fresh quail eggs on Amazon.

I am keeping a small number of quails myself -- because of health issues. I started almost two years ago, so my first batch of birds that I bought live are about to give up on laying eggs. My experience with the birds has been a good one as they are very easy to keep, very nice and sweet creatures, modest in the attention they need by the grower. Still, they were a concern when making plans to travel on a holiday or any other trip -- to find someone to feed and water them.

I got used to have the quail eggs in my diet on a regular basis -- in the period I included quail eggs in the menu I have noticed remarkable good changes in the appearance of my hair, skin and general fitness.

I learnt about the quail egg properties from my sister who had to undergo a lengthy period of treatment for osteoporosis -- at the end she was advised to consume quail eggshells.

She started growing quails and got not only cured of her illness but getting totally fit and looking and feeling younger by twenty years. She even got married after the treatment!

I am very pleased to see that I have now the option to buy my fresh quail eggs in the future just like that, online, by the click of a mouse. If my own little quails are not behaving -- I can turn to Amazon to lay me eggs, and let the bad birds go free into the bush.

Few useful tips about storing, cooking and eating the quail eggs in the quail recipes.

They are not secrets but less known tricks

One concern when buying fresh food is the real freshness of it -- food poisoning is never an option one would gladly choose. Quail eggs are very easy to check -- just place them into a bowl with water -- the eggs stay on the bottom when they are very fresh.

Quail eggs can be stored in a normal fridge -- two, three weeks would present no risk to the consumer.

If there is no functioning fridge around -- place the eggs into lime water -- lime as in the white natural substance that has been used for painting the walls in the past. If there is no lime available -- place the eggs into a watery clay in a container -- these are old storing tricks that work today too, even for regular chicken eggs. The benefits of raw quail eggs are known -- the egg yolk keeps more of it nutrients when it is used raw. However, quail eggs are keeping their health qualities even when cooked -- boiled or fried.

The number of quail eggs that a person can eat is not limited. Quail eggs differ from the chicken egg in that they have no bad cholesterol at all, therefore they can be eaten by people of any age; they are highly rec commanded for children and senior persons for the content of vitamins and calcium that is easy to process by the human body.

The pic illustrates the difference between the appearance of quail eggs from a regular chicken egg - both fresh.

In case of being used as a natural remedy treatment for the various ailments that they can help against -- a dose of one-two eggs should be consumed -- daily, or two , three times per week in an amount combined.

Save the quail eggshells when you fry them

grinded into powder add daily to your salad or stew half of a teaspoon

The eggshells should be washed and dried then a coffee grinder can make them into powder. Store the powder in a jar and use daily as a supplement. Added into salads or cooked food - the equivalent of one quail egg per day -- will keep the dreaded osteoporosis away.

If the illness is already set -- do the same for getting cured -- but you should increase the amount. There are no side effects.

The power of the quail eggshells in a quail recipe -- eggs health for keeps!

use the healing properties of the quail eggshells

This is the reason why quail eggs are best be bought fresh -- so that one can use the eggshells for their healing properties. The quail recipes that I favor have fresh quail eggs as an ingredient.

Whenever I boil quail eggs -- I place them into a jar with vinegar-- and leave them for ten minutes. The vinegar will dissolve a greater part of the shells and store the calcium into itself. I am using apple cider vinegar as it has ab added health quality.

The apple cider vinegar is strained after the process and I store it in a bottle in a dark place. This is one little known quail recipe.

This vinegar is an ingredient for salad dressings that I prepare from time to time, keep in dressing containers and use daily over my vegetables- cooked, baked, steamed or broiled.

It is a most potent prevention of osteoporosis -- the enemy that attacks 50% of women over 50.

  • 200 ml olive oil
  • dark soy sauce 2 tbsp
  • balsamic vinegar 2 tbsp
  • salt
  • cayenne/black pepper to taste
  • tabasco sauce
  • 1 glass of red dry wine
  • 1 tsp honey


  1. This quail recipe suggests grilling the quails. There is however the option of being baked in a foil, or in a halogen oven or even broiled in a pressure cooker -- the meat will be tasty and tender, no matter the choice of preparing it.
  2. It is important though to keep the birds in the marinade for at least four hours -- the best option is for overnight. According to all quail recipes, the quail meat needs some tenderizing before cooked.
  3. Use a kitchen shear and cut the quails into two halves
  4. Clean and wash inside
  5. Dry with towel
  6. Crush garlic
  7. Place all the ingredients in a bowl. Multiply every qty by the number of further two birds per person invited
  8. Place the quails into the bowl. Brush and stir the birds until all covered with the marinade
  9. Cover bowl. Leave it in the fridge over night or at least for four hours before cooking
  10. Preheat oven to 190 degree C
  11. Place quails on to the racks or in a tray
  12. Brush quails over with the marinade that is left in the bowl, several times during cooking
  13. Grill/bake birds until brown and crispy -- it should happen in 30 minutes -- check after 20 minutes in case your oven is strong
  14. I am serving quails with vegetables, baked in the oven but it is a free choice of what the side dish should be. Rice, noodles, steamed vegetables -- they all complement nicely the quails.
  15. Enjoy the meal and be happy! Share the quail recipe with friends.

Quail facts

The little birds called quail are getting popular.

However, the number of quails farmed for their eggs is in no danger, on the contrary. There are more people learning about the health qualities of quail eggs and they support the market for growing the birds in captivity. The wild quails are not laying many eggs – only a few for the reproduction of the species, but they are part of the greater environment that needs all the elements that nature has put into it.

Lorelei Cohen from Canada on December 15, 2011:

I know that eggs are indeed a complete protein so very beneficial to those who have difficulty digesting protein but I wonder if the extra benefit of quail eggs is in itself the tininess of the egg or in the fact that out methods of chicken farming are not suitable to good clean eggs being produced by the birds? A very good article on a very interesting topic my friend. Have a wonderful holiday season.

i really like this lens, one thing crossed my mind is that you talk about preserving the eggs in vinegar, how much better this could be if the vinegar was apple cider vinegar,with all the health benefits of this vinegar + the quail egg benefits, I don't know if cider vinegar will do the same job as normal viegar as regards to preserving, but do some research on cider vinegar and see, maybe you can create a new lens on it
