public service announcement...


goose eggs taste just like chicken eggs.

we used to have chickens when the kids were tiny littles.  we gave up that "extra" responsibility for a number of years.  last summer though, we bought 26 baby chicks.  we lost a few to the dog, and a few mysteriously disappeared.  shortly after we got the chickens we decided on getting a couple brown chinese geese to help keep the dog away from the chickens.  

the chickens and the geese are both laying! 



we're averaging about 10 chicken eggs a day.  since sally, the goose, started laying, we are getting an egg every couple of days from her too.  look at the size of those eggs!

 i knew eventually my husband was going to want to eat the goose eggs.  i'd be lying if i said i wasn't totally scared about it.  because really, who eats goose eggs?  



apparently i do.  
and you know what?  even though i couldn't have told you if it was a chicken egg or a goose egg, because they tasted exactly the same, i still felt a little weird all throughout the meal.  



i have a feeling i'm going to be eating a lot of goose eggs in my future.  

i'm still a little creeped out about it.

have any of you eaten goose eggs?

hmm... the first thing that crosses my mind: if my son is allergic to chicken eggs, i wonder if he would be allergic to goose eggs, too??? it's a thought. probably so. but i wonder.

If I had ever eaten a goose, I don't think I would mind goose eggs. But I haven't had either so I just don't know. But I do think I would be weird-ed out too!

I would loe to have chickens. My grammy did and I spent summers with her. My husband thinks I am nuts. Goose eggs were always omelet eggs at her house... less cracking.

LOVE your new header! So pretty!!
I would totally be weirded out to eat a goose egg! But I was totally weirded out to eat my hubbies deer meat, but now I'm ok with it. So I think I could get use to easing goose too. I thought I wanted chickens, but then I heard some stories . . . do they eat your flowers? Do they stink?

I am totally impressed that you ate a goose egg and that you are eating your own eggs. Do you notice a difference in the taste of yours versus the store? How cool! And the veggies you cooked with the egg look so DELICIOUS!
