Because they are a delicacy in many parts of the world, I assumed that my kids would treat the quail eggs as such, approaching the miniature, speckled colored eggs with trepidation and hesitation.
But no, they just yelled, "Tiny eggs!" and gobbled up the ten hard boiled eggs in about 90 seconds.
In taste and nutritional profile, quail eggs are about the same as chicken eggs. In size, as you can see, they are about one fourth the size of chicken eggs. In cooking time, they take about half the time of chicken eggs. In cuteness, though, quail eggs are at least 20% cuter than chicken eggs.
