    They taste like a chicken egg. If you like your eggs sunny side up, over easy, or just plain fried, this egg isn't for you. Scramble them. If they're fried, they get rubbery, or burnt around the edges, while waiting on the middle to cook.

    You can eat any egg
    Turkey eggs IMO are the best eating egg there is
    I eat chicken/duck/turkey and guinea eggs but the turkey eggs are awesome [​IMG]

    Are all turkey eggs double yolked? I know of a restaurant in Illinois and all their eggs are double yolked, someone told me they were turkey eggs.

    I don't believe I've ever had a double yolked turk egg, & I've been eating them for years.

    I had one turkey that laid double yolked eggs. None of her eggs would hatch. It made me so mad. She was lavendar and my biggest hen.

    I dont think they are like duck eggs
    More like a big ole yard chicken egg just a little lighter
    Like I said I will eat turkey egg over all others
    I'm from Louisiana and like none better than a big fried egg with lots of yoke for a biscuit
    Unless you threw in a bite of quail [​IMG]


    Edited to say: Duck eggs are great for baking though
