Wondering if anyone who has problems eating chicken eggs has tried eggs from other birds (or even reptiles.. I had turtle eggs once!)
Anyone have any positive results with this?

Turkeys don't lay as many eggs as chickens and the eggs they lay are used to hatch more turekys. Reference
I have had eggs from multiple bird species - ducks, emus, ostridge, quail and even robin one time. To me its just neat to try something different. I imagine that you would have to consume these in large amounts to notice any real differences and I doubt anyone wants to crack 16 quail eggs everyday. I'll stick with my soy-free pastured eggs :)
Other birds don't lay as many eggs. It's the same reason why pig milk hasn't caught on. Not that profitable.
I had the turtle eggs in the jungle on an amazon tributary in Peru. They were a little strange tasting, mostly 'yoke', and very different texture then bird eggs.
I guess as long as they're organic, cage free, etc. it shouldn't be too much of an issue, in my opinion. Still, other varities of eggs are pretty tasty. I wonder if there's a significant difference between the eggs where one would not sit well with someone and another would. Still, would be fun to try all those varities!
