Quail Eggs

Cloche overstuffed with eggs and flowers.
I first printed the quail in black and white.
The source is from:

I also printed the quail in color.

The color photo is pretty. 
I like the black and white photo too.

Which one do you like better?

How to blow out the egg yolks.
First wash the eggs with soap and water.
Use a push pin to poke small holes in both ends of the egg.
Be very gentle with the eggs as some may break if you push too hard.
A turkey baster works to remove the yoke.
Wash the eggshells to remove any leftover egg yolks and drain.

To top it all off we had scrambled quail eggs for breakfast.

How pretty! I have been looking for a cloche for a while. I need to settle on one for my home, I think. :) Your photos have inspired me.

The quail eggs are beautiful. Can you purchase them at a grocery? I've never seen them around here, but we tried them at a gourmet restaurant in Maine. Yum!

I like the colored one. Thanks for the tutorial on blowing out eggs-I have always wanted to try it. When I was little my mom's friend had a basket of blown out eggs in her kitchen and I always loved it. The quail eggs are perfect.

My local supermarket had the quail eggs. I've also seen them at Whole Foods just double the price.

Love your cloche arrangement Dee. I really like both of your photos but I'm a big fan of black and white so I'll choose that one. Thanks for the directions on blowing out the eggs. I'll give this a try. I know your home is looking beautiful with all of the arranging you've been doing. Happy Spring. rj

I'll have to remember this for next year. We use organic eggs so they are brown with speckles. Not near as pretty as these Quail eggs are, but still very pretty. I planned on doing this to them, but never thought to use a baster! So much better than putting ones mouth on the eggs. Duh! LOL

Real quail eggs!!!??? I am SO impressed. They look great. Thanks for this tutorial on blowing out eggs. I have gotten many a headache blowing them out the old-fashioned way.

I'm still admiring the quail eggs that I had my husband blow out. He's such a good sport! I'm adding fresh flowers every few days to the cloche.
Thanks for your wonderful notes!

As a fanatic for all things cloche I LOVED this!! I prefer the black and white for a more vintage look *winks* I came over from the open house party at Sherrys. Vanna

I am very excited to be a new quail mommy this week. I wanted to research ways that I can use their eggs in my art. My question is with their fragility, is there anyway that you can fill them with something to make them a little more rugged. I am also concerned over shipping them once decorated etc. My shop is at www.etsy.com/shop/ElysiumGlen
I think that they would be a good fit.
