Locating Edible Eggs in the Wild


Food is the one of the most important aspects of survival. Of course, when you run out of the food you’ve stored, you have no option other than to find more. One great choice available in the wild that’s very nutritious is eggs.

Now, typically when we think of eating eggs, we think of chicken eggs. However, chickens aren’t the only birds that lay edible eggs. The video above shows a man startling a turkey away from its nest. Turkey eggs are edible and have a creamier taste due to their thick yolks and egg whites.

Similar in size to the turkey egg, duck eggs are also a great source of nutrition, having a higher protein and fat content than that of a chicken egg. Duck eggs may be easier to find than turkey eggs as they are often by bodies of water such as lakes or ponds.

Another egg commonly found by the water is the goose egg. Typically on raised ground, these eggs double the size of a chicken’s and with good reason. Goose eggs have a much denser taste and pack a much greater protein content than that of the chicken. Thick shells prove harder to crack open, and the viable number of eggs is low, due to geese only laying about 40 eggs per year.

Believe it or not, eggs actually don’t require refrigeration if they’re not store bought. Check out how you can reduce your monthly expenses and ditch the fridge and live life without refrigeration.
