    How to gut a quail

    They are big words though :) I wonder if phasianidae (old world name) was derived from Pharaoh due to the ancient Egyptian's being the first to keep quail? Or, perhaps it is from pheasant?

    How to skin/pluck a quail after slaughter

    As the title suggests this is just a quick video on skinning a quail - I find this way faster and easier than plucking (if doing the job by hand).
