Semi-Boneless Quail

Semi-Boneless Quail

QU004          6 per pack – 5 oz. each     $26.00
QURT04       Retail Pack   2 per pack     $ 8.90

All of the bones in Cavendish Game Birds’ semi-boneless quail have been removed except for the wing and lower leg. Sleeve or glove boning the bird leaves the skin intact, making it perfect for stuffing—from a traditional bread stuffing to foie gras and truffles.  This product is excellent for grilling and sautéing.

Butterfly Quail

Butterfly Quail

QU002       6 per pack – 5 oz. each     $26.00
QURT02      Retail Pack –2 per pack    $ 8.90

The back, ribs, and keel bones are removed from our butterfly quail, with the wing, leg, and thigh bones left intact, leaving the back of the breast exposed. An ideal cut for both grill and sauté presentations, with substantial plate coverage and a quicker cooking time than the semi-boneless quail.

Whole Quail

Whole Jumbo Quail

QU003    6 per pack – 6.5 oz. to 7oz. each $24.00
QURT03  Retail Pack 2 per pack             $8.20

Cavendish Game Birds’ whole quail are plump enough to be less intimidating when approached by a knife and fork!  They can be served with or without stuffings or carved off the bone. These larger, whole birds are perfect for chefs who like to do their own meat fabrication. Most meats taste and cook the best when left on the bone—Cavendish Game Birds’ quail are no exception.

The same breast as the butterfly quail, only the “v” joint on the wing is removed, as are the leg and thigh bones. A great grill or sauté item, the boneless quail breast is also perfect for special occasions. It cooks fast, presents beautifully on the plate, and is knife- and-fork ready.

Cavendish Game Birds’ Pheasant Products

NOTE:  All listed pheasant products are currently in stock.

Vermont farm-raised pheasant breast meat is white, while the legs and thighs are dark, similar to turkey. While many producers now raise a white hybrid pheasant for the food industry, Cavendish Game Birds feels that the ring-necked pheasant is a superior choice offering a more traditional mild game flavor.
