    My bronze turkey, Gladys, is laying eggs now. So cool. The first few were twin yolks. I'm noticing that the yolk is much thicker than a chicken egg.

    How will my dishes change when I use Turkey egg instead of Chicken egg?
    Do you have any Turkey Egg specific recipes?
    Any tips for breaking the hard shell without getting shell pieces everywhere? (Its a lot harder than a chicken egg)

    Baked good might be a tad fluffier or fuller.

    Otherwise little difference the texture is slightly different in omelets, scrambled or fried eggs but otherwise all the same.

    Thank you. I'm looking forward to testing out the turkey eggs on some chocolate chip cookies.

    Well obviously they will still be delicious! However, my cookies are known for being super soft - look to hard at them and they fall apart. The concern is that the thicker yolk will make them less soft.

    I have a baker that buys all the turkey eggs I can spare. They make her cakes more moist. Let us know how the cookies turn out!
