    Saturday I got my very first egg. I cracked it open to look at it and, yep, it looks just like an egg... lol. It was fertile as well.

    No egg yesterday then two eggs today. I was a little scared to eat them... dunno why. I finally got over it and scrambled them up and slopped them on some toast... yummy!

    Here's Saturday's egg... yes, I took a picture [​IMG]

    Ha ha, I understand the apprehensiveness all too well! [​IMG] My turkey just started laying eggs, and I just can't eat them yet....think I'll have DH try it first...to see if it tastes different!!

    Hey congrats! I got my first two duck eggs of the season today. Never had any trouble eating them but was real squeamish about the goose eggs. I had heard they were tough and rubbery. When I finally fried them up they were yummy.

    I had never eaten my own ducks eggs- Just something I never did- but recently went to a friends house. We had Quiche for lunch- made from duck eggs. It was delicious- but i still dont think I could ever eat one of my own ducks eggs.

    Congrats on your ducky laying!

    Duck eggs are wonderful! I would eat a duck egg over a chicken egg any day, and I have both.
    To the person who said turkeys lay double yolk eggs...they can, just like any bird, but their eggs usually only have one yolk.
