    Don't want to get between you and your mother, but yes, you can eat the eggs. They're a good size for pickling also.

    NO!!! There's no such thing as a poisonous poultry egg. They are fine to eat, just take 20 of them to get an omelet!

    Yep sure can. Pheasant,quail,Partridge,turkey,peafowl, and chicken all taste about the same. I have eaten all these, dont like the waterfowl eggs.

    Like in the other post, becareful eaten eggs from medicated birds , even ones that have been wormed. Check withdraw time of all meds.
