The Incredible Edible Pheasant Egg

I was recently given some pheasant eggs to try. What’s the difference between a chicken egg and a pheasant’s?

The difference between a chicken and a pheasant egg is mainly size, color of the shell and a lot less egg white. A chicken egg shell can be white, various shades of brown, tan, blue or olive green, and the inside of the shell is white or beige. The pheasant egg is deep olive green on the outside and a light robin’s egg blue on the inside of the shell.

They cook the same, although because of less egg white you would have to use a 2:1 ratio of 2 pheasant eggs to 1 chicken egg in your baking recipes. The pheasant eggs taste the same as a chicken’s. Many people believe that a duck egg is much richer than a chicken’s.

In this photo I have cracked both of the pheasant eggs and one large white chicken egg. You can see that the pheasant egg’s yolk is as large as a medium chicken’s egg.

Now I have added a jumbo brown chicken egg into the bowl for size comparison.

I scrambled the eggs, added seasonings and fried them together. Along with some bacon and toast, it was a delicious breakfast. Do not be afraid to try new things.

If I am blind I can still see life and all the blessings God has  for me.
