Where does one purchase quail eggs?

Hi, this depends really on where you are from. In the UK they are available in the larger supermarkets and some Farmers Markets. Another option is to search the internet for quail breeders in your area as they may have surplus eggs or know of someone who sells.

I have chickens, but I guess their eggs won't do for this recipe...I'll have to see if anyone raises quail here in Maryland...just out of curiosity, is there a big taste difference between a chicken egg and a quail egg?

You can use chicken eggs, just cut them into smaller pieces. Personally I don't think there's a great difference, perhaps quail eggs aren't quite so "eggy" tasting but that may be because they're smaller.
