    Edible eggs...

    This might be a strange question and I hope
    you dont take it too serious...
    I just wonder if it is actually possible to eat
    cockatiel eggs?
    Or if they are like goose and duck eggs that you
    have to cook for ages because they are poisonous
    when raw?
    I am just curious, not that you think I am going
    to breed a new cockatiel laying hen mutation...

    be like making a sandwhich out of olives, but weirder. I couldn't do it, and not only because the eggs in my birds nest are probably fertile.

    Well, that is what I was told in vet school---
    always cook goose and duck eggs for at least
    10 minutes, because they are poisonous raw.
    Maybe you survived because of your though Aussie
    bush tucker stomach...

    We used to have ducks (well we do now) but they were our source of eggs every day. Dad cooked them runny or as ommlets etc. Never had a problems with them! So as i said it may be wild ducks not domestacted ones

    Re: Edible eggs...

    Well, it was said duck eggs in general.
    They even have to have a stamp in Germany
    that says you have to cook them for 10 minutes.
    But to be honest, we have lots of crazy rules in
    Germany, this one is not particulary strange.
    And after you all say it is not too bad and you definitely
    dont drop dead...
    Oh my good, maybe you are all zombies!

    Hmmmm(insert scratching head emote, lol) I wonder what the difference is? We eat wild duck here when son decides to go shooting (live on rice farm, mainly use gas scare guns but duck is yum) If the body is ok why wouldn't the egg be??
