Hi everyone, My daughters have been interested in eating quail eggs, so I bought some from a local quail owner to see what we thought of them. We've fancied the idea of raising a couple of quail just for eggs and thought we'd try them first. The man I bought them from said his birds were young and they just started laying a few days ago. The eggs are all under 4 days old. I am keeping them in the fridge all in a covered bowl. Today, I cracked four of them to make (adorable) scrambled eggs with a little cheese for my daughters. I blew the egg out of the shell because the girls wanted to keep the pretty little eggs. With my nose so close to the eggs, I noticed an odd, off smell on the shells. After getting the contents of the eggs in the bowl, I smelled the eggs. No smell at all. It was just on the shells. I deemed them fine to eat (perhaps foolishly) and cooked them for the girls. That was about 30 minutes or so ago. Moments ago, my youngest daughter suddenly threw up the eggs that I fed her. She seems fine now, but she definitely threw up the eggs. I don't know what brought it on, but I wonder about that smell. It could have been too much cheese, it could have been the delicate gag reflex of a child, or anything else, but because of the smell, I am concerned. The rest of the eggs are still in the covered bowl and they do smell funny. Is this typical? Thanks.
