I figure her heart's in the right place (like at least she's interested where food comes from and how it's raised). The problem is that since that day she is constantly reminding me she's more than happy to take my girls off my hands and how much she's looking forward to eating them. When I told her they weren't laying (moult) she offered to come over the next day and get them! So, one day I'd had enough of hearing about it and told her I would be happy to take her cat for compost when it died and well, she didn't speak to me for weeks! 

 

Ahhh. The old "dose of her own medicine" remedy. Works every time! old.gif

Next time this happens, please ask them where they think eggs come from.  Then tell us.  I really wanna know. I really do.

I have never used turkey eggs, but my mother used to make the very best cakes with duck eggs. I don't know why the duck eggs made a difference, but they did.

Those must come from the same place as "store milk" grandparents had a small farm when I was a kid and every summer we got shipped well I had money for "store milk" because that stuff out of the cow was not milk. It did not look or tasted the same and grandma made all kinds of stuff with it like not butter and not cheese and a lot of other not really food things.  Hey I grew up in Los Angeles what did I know even though we spent the summers at the farm it never clicked till I was much older. I sure missed a lot  of good milk and other not really food things.smack.gif

 

By the way the picture is of Hawk Creek outside of Davenport WA.  Caught some really nice trout there and some fish with teeth.  May be from CA but I do where the good fishing is.

My Swiss neighbor used her goose eggs. She said they were much "richer" than chicken eggs. Maybe duck eggs are, too.
