They have started to lay a little more regularly now, almost one a day. We plan on incubating 10 eggs all laid in the last week or so and then leaving some future eggs in their nests to see if they will sit on them – that’s if the chickens don’t take over!
So today I set up the incubator.
This however, leaves us with some quite old eggs that we found more than a week ago – what, oh what should we do with these?
Scrambled eggs of course! So yesterday we made scrambled turkey eggs.
4 (have I said before that we are greedy people?) turkey eggs; dollop of butter; toast (made from slightly heavy homemade bread as I was a little mean adding the yeast); dill.
Put a dollop of butter in a pan. Lightly beat turkey eggs and add to pan. Scramble – but take off the heat before it has finished cooking and is still a bit runny as it will continue to cook as you serve it – I don’t like overcooked eggs. Make toast and butter it – serve.
But what did it taste like? Delicious. I think it was a bit nicer – maybe richer than scrambled eggs made with hens eggs, but we didn’t do a taste comparison and I was very hungry so this is hardly an objective review. I am going to tell everyone that they were amazing though to create a demand for turkey eggs. Actually we already have a list of people who want to buy goose eggs from us and we don’t even have any geese yet – we are working on this project which of course involves moving earth and scheming.
