One of my turkeys laid her first egg and the shell is too soft to hatch. Has anyone eaten these eggs? Normally I would throw them away but since I don't have my own supply of eggs at the moment I hate to waste a good egg if I can eat it.

I am impatient - I ate it anyway and it was fabulous!

Turkeys only lay seasonally, right? Or can they be encouraged to do otherwise?

I had a guinea that would lay with no shell. Good thing they're membrane is so tough the shell-less egg where little bags o egg and yoke.

Used to boil them up and always great.

Wish she was still around and laying...

LOVE turkey eggs! You might want to provide some oyster shell to help them along with shell production.
