Local quail (semi boneless)

Want to grill a large amount ( 30 or so) of local quail for Christmas Eve meal. Suggestions for a local source would be appreciated.

  1. I "think" I saw quail in La Michoacana on Cameron. Maybe check there?

    1. They sell local semi-boneless quail at the downtown Whole Foods. Wouldn't be surprised if you can find it somewhere cheaper, though.

        Texas Quail Farms is located in Lockhart and supplies most area stores and restaurants with really good semi-boneless quail. They come in cases of 24, and East Poultry on 5th distributes. Call East and see if you can pick up a case retail from them.

          Thanks panko. From what I could gather on their site, thought they were just a "Dick Cheney-type" reserve. The site does' nt mention anything about sales. Buying 2-3 packs at WF way too expensive. Will check it out

          It's 13.99 for four frozen quail at Whole Foods. They're $5 each at the meat counter at Central Market. I'd be interested if anyone can get them cheaper elsewhere.

            I was at Sprouts on Brodie Lane today. They had frozen quail, 6 for $8.99.
