    Somebody gave me a pheasant that they caught when it fell in their yard because it can't fly.
    If/When it lays eggs, can I eat them?

    Should I be feeding it any probiotics? I only ask because when somebody gave us our (older) hen, we had to give her probiotics (yogurt) for 30 days to make sure she was healthy

    o ya surely can eat them, there a Lil tough to crack , but once you got them opened a bit and get the inner membrane tore, they open right up..same goes for quail and wild turkey eggs..turkey and pheasant eggs make for some excellent dippers. However they do seem to have a slight different taste, esp when feeding purina gamebird feeds as it has real animal by products in the feed instead of that yucky soy based feeds.. but still tasty..
