    Butchered our first turkey last week. We have three and think they're MWs. At 5 months, she finished at 22lbs. I attached a poor quality photo of them.

    Question: Upon cleaning the entrails/cavity, I found one egg (hard), and about 12 yolk-like masses of varying sizes. The largest of which was the size of a chicken yolk. They were yellow and of the same viscosity of chicken yolks. Chicken yolks are the only type I know to compare it for that is all I know.

    Can anyone tell me what they were? I assume they were eggs in development.

    Thank you.

    If they were in the egg duct yes they were eggs. Some people say they are good but I have never tried them.
