well, if you're wondering where to get them I have seen them at Surfa's in Culver City and also at the Pavilion market in Culver City.
If you're looking for something to do with them, I saw this article with recipes (Bon Appétit, March 2007), which suggested pickling them and serving them in a martini, served along with homemade potato chips drizzled with white truffle oil, Parmesan, parsley and fresh cracked pepper. Sounded pretty good to me, so it's stuck in my head since then, but I'm sure there are many many uses.
I saw them in the refrigerator at Nanay's Seafood Market in LA.

4032 Eagle Rock Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90065
On the westside, I usually find quail eggs at Nijiya Market on Sawtelle.
My preferred method for having quail eggs is always raw (or cracked on hot rose rice with toasted sesame seeds, bonito flakes and soy sauce.)
von's at santa monica and robertson has them. 99 ranch markets do too-check out the one at Sepulveda and Victory.
