Forgive me if this is a stupid question. I have just never heard of anyone doing so.
We even eat the duck and goose eggs.
Makes a great omelet!
You probably just don't hear much about it because they are much higher maintenance so people usually don't raise Turkeys just for the eggs.
isnt there only a few breeds of turkeys that naturally reproduce?,, and for the ones that have to be AI ,, do they still lay eggs? ,,,,, turkeys are my next investment in the spring
Of course you can eat them and of course the broad breasted whites produce eggs. Your typical turkey 'broiler' is a hybrid, though, so may/may not breed 'true'.
Haven't you ever watched Iron Chef??? They had a great show where they used eggs of all sorts, not just fowl eggs, but fish, frog, ets. Also there was one on Turkey and they used all parts to include eggs.
Quote:by reproduce if you mean actually breed naturally,all the heritage breeds do,if by reproduce you mean just lay eggs,even the BB hens will lay eggs,if they live long enough and dont have a heart attack or the legs collapse.the BB I have experienced havent layed a bunch of eggs,very few actually but they do lay,these where refugees that get away from the unloading dock at the turkey plant where I grew up,we would go catch them at night and keep them for awhile until we got around to processing them,some layed eggs.
Greyfields - do you eat your goose eggs?
Neither my turkeys or geese have started laying yet. I've heard that the turkey and goose eggs have a stronger flavor than chicken eggs.
I have eaten goose eggs. They are just big eggs. I believe under a blind tasting one could not tell apart a chicken, goose or duck egg. At least that's my take on it.
Just like most people wouldn't know they were drinking goat's milk.
They are great scrambled. They differ from chook eggs in that the membrane is particularly tough. If the shell is cracked and one sticks one's thumbs in to seperate the shell halves the membrane will give way like a balloon bursting and sometimes ya get to eat some raw as albume(i)n and yolk go spraying about (learned the hard way...).
