How long do you boil quails eggs to produce a not too runny yolk?

Quails eggs are yummy. Bring your salty water to boil and gently drop your eggs into the water: 2 minutes for a runny yolk or 3 minutes for a stiffer one.

If eggs were refrigerated, it will crack as soon as it touches the boiling water. In this case, start with the eggs already in tap salted water, bring to a gentle boil and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

Take off the heat and run under cold water for a few minutes, peel and enjoy.

How do you stop a rooster from crowing?

You can't stop 'em from crowing, but you can muffle the noise (between certain hours) by keeping them inside your house (in cages!) or in a sound-boarded chicken house. Location of the roost is also important, as sound will bounce off certain structures and even seem to amplify.

Light is the main reason a rooster will crow after going to roost at night. If any light is getting in the coop he will not settle well. Make sure the inside of the coop is dark once the sun goes down.

What is unique about a whippoorwill's beak?

It is very short. Whippoorwills are aerial hunters, catching their insect prey in flight in their wide mouths. They do not need bills to hunt or feed, and have evolved with their beaks much wider then they are long. They do not have a bony palate, which may help them be more sensitive to when they have caught prey. They also have rictal bristles, sort of like forward-facing whiskers, whose function is unclear but may help them funnel food into their mouth and/or protect their eyes.

Do Grouse lose their tail feathers?

Yes. It is a survival mechanism which allows them to escape from a predator that has them by the tail. I've seen a great video on Wild America of a grouse doing this to get away from a lynx. Feathers are held in place by muscles, which can relax and allow the feather to be pulled out.

Do bobwhite quails swim?

we have 10 of them but have never tried this,

I'm guessing that if they just touched the water for a second they could still fly out of the water but if their feathers became water logged they would surely drown.
