Default Eggs

I have had Goose and Duck.
At the health food store I got them the goose was no more expensive than the duck and they were twice the size.

At one time my wife and I had about a 100 white ducks and we got a lot of eggs every day but they were a little rubberly for my taste but they were great for baking pies and cakes.

We had a few ducks when I was a kid, and they would lay their eggs in the shallow end of the pond.
They never tried to nest. We didn't have a drake so that might explain it.
Anyway, my Mom always cooked those and the double yoke chicken eggs for me because I loved eggs more than my brothers.
We had guineas but seldom found a nest, but the one time that I remember, we candled a couple of the eggs and they had chicks in them.

To me, the finest flavor in the world, is warm runny egg yolks.

my grandpa would eat anything. I remember he used to go to an island on st marys river that was a nesting place for seagulls and collect eggs. there were many in town that did the same. told me around there in the depression if you ate eggs they were usually seagull eggs because chicken eggs were to valuable and you sold those. He and others did it well after the depression. I remember going with him and some of his buddys in the late 60s

My mom kept chickens, ducks and turkeys. We ate all the eggs no mater what they came from.

Used to save the eggs from fish we caught and even turtle eggs from turtles we butchered.

I like my eggs cooked about any there is but really favor the over medium with runny yokes to sop up with good toast.

I've heard that goose eggs make a great angle food cake. They ought to whip up stiff enough as rubbery as the whites are.
I once ate $26 worth of raw turkey eggs between breakfast and lunch. Worked in a turkey hatchery and fumbled a couple of $13 breeder eggs. Waste not, want not, but it must be a record of some kind.

On our farm, we always had ducks, usually about 100 and we always ate the eggs from them. We also had some chickens and geese and ate those eggs too.


Back in the day, my oldest brother took a job at a turkey hatching farm and he could get double yolk turkey eggs for cheep, so dad always bought those too, as ducks don't lay year around...


We still get duck eggs from time to time from friends, and I have no problem at all eating or cooking with them...

My favorite way to eat eggs is grown. Fried chicken.

I noticed on Life below Zero that the young couple that were on there at one time would go out and collect sea gull eggs and chip and his wife and kids always go out and collect duck and goose eggs all we had when we were on the farm as a child was duck goose and chicken eggs they were all good.
