Can you eat dove eggs? Scrambled? Hard-boiled? Thank you in advance.
You probably could...but most people wouldn't because they perfer to hatch them.
All birds eggs are edible. I couldn't imagine bothering with one as small as a dove's egg, but you certainly can if you want to.
Sure, but don't overdo they're very filling?
I was thinking of cracking some open and frying them up too, as I have so many females and no males and they are all setting on dud eggs!
Yes, you can eat them. it takes 247 for a breakfast!
There's nothing wrong with that, just make sure you gather them before they start incubating them! Dove and quail eggs would probably make great bite-sized hardboiled eggs. I don't like hardboiled eggs but it sounds convenient
I have 4 doves in a large pen with some quail. The quail lay all the time but I only get one or two dove eggs a month. I thought about boiling the dove eggs along with the quail eggs just to see if they were any good. After reading this, I am going to give it a shot and see what's what.
Dove eggs are very tasty and nutritious; However it takes a lot to make a dozen.
i eat them, my dog eats them, the cat eats them. theyre great, just takes two to four days to get a meal.. if someone made a pigeon breed that would produce every day, like some chickens, quail, and ducks do, then id get to have downtown city pets that I could keep quietly and free fly from my porch, as i enjoy the breakfast they made me warm and fresh, more often.
