I just found a new source of pastured eggs and was given a freebie carton on guinea eggs. Anyone tried them? Are they good?

Okay I saw guinea pigs and just about died. But yes, I have and I do like them but they are a pain to crack.

I've heard of people where I live raising them because they eat fleas, ticks, etc. Probably higher in Omega 3's?

I actually have had guinea pigs. They are delicious.

I finally started eating them this morning. They taste like chicken eggs but are a b*tch to crack. Had to tap with a butter knife to get started. They're smaller but the yolks were very nice and dark.

Haha I clicked on it thinking it said guinea pigs as well. Hmmm, maybe I'll google guinea pig recipes. Those Andeans might be onto something, could be the next big paleo hit- imagine raising your own pastured G.P.'s in your backyard!

At first I thought this said guinea pigs, which I haven't brought myself to try yet.

yeah I noticed those shells were the real deal. Hope they're not too hard to crack!

Interesting...Maybe the shells have a higher calcium content (eggshells are made of calcium carbonate, thus they make a very good and inexpensive calcium supplement).

If the guinea fowls are themselves pastured, I would probably eat them out of novelty, but I doubt that they are nutritionally any different than chicken eggs fed the same thing, unless the guinea fowls don't eat grass itself or something.

We use them along with our pastured chicken eggs and taste no difference - those shells can be real fun to break - very hard -- almost like glass!
