Remember the ‘Quail-a-mid’ scheme’ that took Kenya by Storm in 2014. The quail is a small ground-nesting game bird or wild bird. Traditional quail farming is an ancient cultural practice in Vihiga. Farmers are constantly looking out for the finest ‘singers’, who are then domesticated and trained to attract their wild mates. A “kiyenyeji” quail meal is a mouth-watering delicacy. Quail eggs are very delicious and comparable to free range chicken, they are low in cholesterol and rich in choline, a chemical essential for brain function.
