Quail eggs

I was buying a few things at a Japanese grocery store when I saw these:

I had to try them!  Here they are, posing with a teaspoon:

Aren't they pretty?

And tiny!  That's a quarter, for those of you not up on your American pocket change:

I decided to fry them.  Here's one, dwarfed by the frying pan...

And here they are on toast.  It takes around 4-5 quail eggs to equal a hen's egg.

They were very tasty.  I'd say they even tasted a little more rich than a hen's egg (the yolk is proportionally bigger), although they were pretty similar.

Cost of the experiment?  $1.45 for a box of 10.
