This just looks nasty

The funny thing is, it probably tastes pretty good with a nice rich yolk.

    No more nasty than the duck egg the sushi guy at work gave me once.

    Being an okie redneck hillbilly fuck you I won’t do what you told me kinda guy, believe me, duck eggs, turkey eggs, quail eggs and eggs in general taste fantastic !
    I’ve been doing chickens for fifteen years and just started to raise ducks and turkeys.
    Quail are difficult to produce without proper environmental habitat concerns.
    I would like to try pheasants. There are several ornamentals besides the ringneck.
    Kinda creepy with the clear albumen but the orange yolk lets you know it goes good with toast ! Mmmmm, good !

      Duck eggs are awesome!
      Large, and so rich. Deep orange yolks.
      I’m friends with this couple that have 4 chickens and 4 ducks.
      I house sit on their farm on occasion, which means I have an endless supply!
      Between them, and the Hudderites that come to my neighbors every Friday, I’ve got more eggs than I can give away! I get flats of 30 for $2 from the hudderites. I buy them, just to give to people. It’s one of those cool things. It’s costs me almost nothing, and all the families I give them to are super thankful.

      My son and I eat all the duck eggs though! Not only are they the best, but all my fellow city dwellers are pussies, and think the duck eggs are too weird!

      I’d try penguin eggs. I can’t remember which one, but some comedian I listen to, says penguins would be the perfect food – cause they are like half bird and half fish! So they are probly super healthy to eat!

    According to the attached link they’re somewhat of a delicacy and were hard boiled then massed up to eat on toast. I was wondering if they’d taste fishy due to the penguins diet but apparently this is less of an issue then I’d thought.

    I met a guy some 40 years ago that had lived in the Falkland Islands. He told me then that a fried penguin egg stayed clear. Thanks for proving his point.

    “I’ve been doing chickens for fifteen years”

    Sooo no one’s going to touch that one? Kidding, Kidding! – Been on chicken farms my entire life. Can’t say I’ve ever eaten an egg that wasn’t chicken.

    Really want to try ostrich though.

  9. Exile1981 says:

    What critter eats effects the flavor of the eggs. Penguins eat fish. So a penguin egg likely has a fishy aftertaste.

    If you like sardenes in your omlete then maybe its ok, but if you cheese and salsa… then penguinn eggs are likely a bad idea.

    I can only speak about chicken, duck & goose eggs. Chickens and Ducks are omnivores, They’ll eat anything that doesn’t eat them first. Yet chicken eggs are very mild and bland, duck eggs have more flavor and color and can be larger or smaller, depending on the breed. Geese are mostly herbivores, mild eggs but 3 or 4 times the size of chicken eggs. Very tasty! Fresh eggs make all the difference, they stand up in the pan and stare back at you. The stuff in the grocery store is already a month old by the time its put on the shelf. I’d give that funny looking egg a try if it was fresh from the bird.

    I’ve had emu and ostrich eggs. they both look normal, just larger. the emu egg shell is rather nice looking, a dark green that gets lighter as you go deeper into it. people use them for carving.

  12. Granny says:

    Having eaten a lot of ‘Local food’, all over this planet, the line gets drawn at Penguins. Never say never of course, but they would be at the bottom of the list of survival food. Can’t come at that.

    Rats !
    Eric done went and exposed mah avian desires by pointing out mah Froodian slip..
    Being from Oklahoma and jumping in with both feet to WC’s “Okie” stereotype, I tend to write from that particular POV. We Okies are a peculiar lot and there aren’t many things we won’t do, however, the reference was purely coincidental.
    Now them Arkansans……. I’ll tell you what, they do MILLIONS of chickens every year !!!

  14. I wonder how that would be over easy with bacon and hash browns.
