A serving of three quail eggs contains 43 calories, 3 grams of fat and under 1 gram of saturated fat. That's significantly less than the 72 calories, 5 grams of fat and nearly 2 grams of saturated fat you'd get from one chicken egg. Like chicken eggs, quail eggs supply mono- and polyunsaturated fats, both of which may lower your risk of elevated cholesterol and heart disease, especially if you limit your consumption of saturated and trans fats.
While one large chicken egg has 186 milligrams of cholesterol, though, three quail eggs have 228 milligrams. For a healthy adult on a 2,000-calorie diet, that's 76 percent of the 300-milligram recommended daily limit.
