Where can I buy fresh quail eggs?

I live in the suburbs of Chicago (NW) and was wondering if anyone knew of a place where I could purchase fresh quail eggs? Help!

    I saw them two hours ago for about $2 a dozen. Don't know name of store but it is on N Broadway at about Ainslie in a strip mall across from Uptown Post Office. Stand with your back to the street and face the strip mall. At the extreme left inner corner is an Asian supermarket---just to the right of that is a restaurant called Dong Ky. The supermarket has fresh quail eggs in the refrigerated case that holds tofu and green produce, along the back of the store.

      Any Asian store in uptown. Always less than $2. Seen them at foc and obel for almost $7. And it was the same packaging!

        I just saw them at Gene's in Lincoln Square. I would call first to make sure they were not just for the holiday, though.

          Treasure Island in Wilmette or Chicago always carry them.

            H-Mart in Niles and Naperville always has them. Enjoy!

              I just discovered a "Pollos Vivos" located on Chicago Ave (in between Ashland and Damen) that is chock full of live poultry (for purchase) and they also have eggs... something crazy like only $6 for two dozen quail eggs!!!

                I see them all over. Mitsuwa should have them, I saw them earlier today at Garden Fresh in Northbrook.
