We have a local urban farm that sells fresh eggs, raw honey, and a myriad of honey-based products.  Their aviary boasts many varieties of hens and roosters, quail, and even peacocks.  While there I inquired about these small brown speckled eggs; the owner explained that they were quail eggs and put a few into my bag of purchases.
