    awesome pics. those eggs look like wet ping pong balls :p

    hmm...since you don't want to hatch them....do turtle eggs make good omelets?

    (prepares for flaming due to mentioning eating sulcata eggs)
    hey, at least that way they wont go to waste.

    Hey, no one was upset about someone else talkin about Ostrich Omelets not to long ago. Yes this is slightly different but I think you will find that we don't tend to "flame" people here. We try to be as friendly as we can and discourage "beating people up" like is so common in other forums.

    Hey, I talk about making iguana stew on a weekly basis, we're mature here, we can handle a joke.
    Now where'd I put that recipe for adorable baby seal steaks?

    HAHAHA! I typed frog legs at first but then decided adorable baby seals might be more offensive.

    I mean, who doesn't wonder what these taste like?

    Lacey, you're horrid! ;) My brother actually asked about eating the tort eggs... we said, "go ahead." Of course, he quickly rejected the idea! We had talked to giving them to someone with a snake, but there are two drawbacks... 1) we don't know anyone close by with a snake. 2) there's no guarantee that they won't incubate the eggs themselves.

    I actually wasn't joking about eating the eggs.
    All kinds of animal eggs do get eaten, so why not tort eggs?

    Like a chicken supplies eggs to a farm, your torts can supply eggs for your breakfest. Don't know anything about how they compare nutritionally to chicken eggs though. Maybe they are healthier for you.

    I wonder how they'd taste... mild, strong, gamey???

    No personal experience but I believe I remember hearing that turtle eggs have a sort of fishy taste!
    Probably from one of the PBS nature programs I watch.

    OK... that clinches it... I will not be eating turtle eggs. I love eggs and I love fish, but I don't think I could stomach fishy eggs!

    I bet the shell is a bit tougher. :p

    I love eggs, chicken eggs, all others are not OK with me. I tried Quail eggs, didn't like them. My son tried one of his tiny button quail eggs, fried, he liked it. I almost chucked just watching him eat it. Ewwww. Then I was very mad at my wife for suggesting it in the first place! :mad: Sicko!

    Cool to see that they are happy and healthy enough to lay out Steph! Well, go figure, they have the best Mom in the world taking care of them. Must be quite the scene now, cows in one field, tortoises in the other. LOL!

    I expected the shells to be leathery, but they weren't... they seemed just as hard as chicken eggs. Of course, we didn't break any open... maybe next time!
