Can I hardboil eggs without the shells?

I have a lot of quail eggs and they are a pain to peel. I just want to make egg salad with them, but is there a way to hard cook the eggs without the shells? Since I'm chopping them up, they don't need to be pretty. Is hard poaching my only option?

I've looked at the Eggies contraption, but they sound like more trouble than they are worth.

There are about 7 quail eggs to 1 large chicken egg, so you can understand my desire to peel first. It takes me about 5 minutes to peel a dozen and I've had lots of practice!
