    No. Only when I skin them. Be pretty tough to stay under the skin and still cut along both sides of the spine. But I bet I try it next time!

    So when you pluck them do you get the lungs out, if so how?

    When I clean quail, I do skin them, then cut them open down one side of the spine. The lungs are then easily accessed to be removed. I leave the spine in and have excellent access to that area. I suppose if you has problems, maybe a stiff toothbrush or a brass brush could be used to increase your success.

    Thanks Troy, had to change how one cleans birds, but may have to start cutting down spine. Tooth brush is a good suggestion as well. Hope all is well with you and your family!

    Tom, if you have a fertility rattle or dance, you might give me a few minutes as the girls have been getting missed. Hope you are well. Blizzard here today! 70 yesterday.

    I just scrape them out with my fingernail, then everything goes into a game washer for 10 minutes. If you donít have one, itís the best $40 you can spend for preparing birds for the table.

    That's it. Shockingly effective. When I bought it, I thought, whelp, I'm wasting $$ on another useless contraption...

    And I was dead wrong.

    Will never be with out one again—from the cleaning table into the bucket —into the bags -wth a quick check-
    If you have a 5 gallon bucket already can make one for less than $10 dollars -more like $5 in parts—
