Trying something new

Last week a new local friend of mine blessed me with some quail eggs.  They just started raising quail last fall, and they get about 3 dozen eggs a day.  So she had plenty to share!  It takes about 11 or 12 eggs to get the amount I would normally eat from 2 or 3 chicken eggs.  They taste just like chicken eggs, only lighter.  They are also extremely nutritious!  High in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, Vitamin B Riboflavin, Vitamin A and E.  They are also lower in bad cholesterol than chicken eggs.  Fantastic!  I hope to get more soon!  Be sure and try some if you ever find them in your area.
