They are a very common meat fowl in mezzo- america, and south America
If you can imagine yourself eating a bird that lay this wonderful eggs!
In fact we tried 0.5 year ago to deliver some eggs here to Israel from a big tinamou farm from Columbia, if I remember correctly, but it didn't happen in the end. I know that there are some birders in the USA that have them,,,,
That's interesting. Thanks for the information. :o)
