Do quail even have enough meat to eat? I used to raise them and they were tiny-- but maybe I just had some pygmy kind or something. I loved the sounds they made and we got a ton of eggs from them. Itty bitty eggs....

We had a friend who had chickens in town (but he kept them inside a fenced in yard) and his wife wanted the eggs. They hadn't started laying, so my father snuck over and put some quail eggs in the nests. The guy's wife thought they were awfully small, but was happy. Then he slipped a duck egg in. Then he slipped in one of our chicken eggs (our chickens laid "jumbo" eggs) and then he slipped in a goose egg. Then the guy's wife made him sleep in the chickenyard to watch the chickens to see if they were actually laying the eggs.

Default Why they call me The Late-life Biker

I haven't given up on DIY renovations and repair, but just six months before I retired my wife and I discovered motorcycles. And after I retired (at 67) I had plenty of time to pursue it. Throw in my love of camping and I was alive again. Some of you--notably the senior crew--might find the whole process of interest. I've chronicled much of it on my blog, and I hope you'll get a taste of it at http://www.latelifebiker.com
