That’s how I clean my wild birds, just don’t pluck.

Plucking directions:
Scald in 160 degree water for 15 seconds, directly in pluckers for 15 seconds. They come out looking like an eraser.

Awesome! I recently had to part with my Coturnix. They are some fine eating. I like grilling them like Dove poppers with bacon and Jalepeno. Need to get me another group started.

Yes EZ and fun to raise, very tasty also. I'll always have them around. From hatched to mature in 8 weeks you can't go wrong.
Wife makes a Cajun quail pasta which is WOW if you've ever had it.
