Ostrich eggs! Answered

While me and my family are having a holiday in Devon, UK, we came across a local store that sell real Ostrich eggs! This is my first time in my life seeing a ostrich egg, my dad brought one and ostrich eggs are said to taste like normal chicken eggs and a single ostrich egg has a average serving of 18 - 24 chicken eggs... I wonder if anybody has ostrich eggs in their area and ever eaten one...

I don't know, but I can tell you something different... Before we eat the egg, it went bad, so my dad got rid - by draining it down the drain, and the whole house smells like a stink bomb that can easily choke you, and the smell did not go away for hours... uck All I can tell you is if you let an ostrich egg go bad, it stinks - bad.

Ugh, why do I get so many comments! While I was inactive for about a month, I get like 10 comments a day, when I came back, I get bombarded with 20 to 30 comments a day! Why?! (no offence, you just seem to be the right person for me to say this, lol) Umm, I don't know what happen to the shell, it is probably to stinky to use it anyway.

Ostriches are bitey.....
I guess it is because they are trying to protect their eggs?

I have never had the eggs, but I HAVE had Ostrich burgers before. Low in fat and tasty too (no, they DON'T taste "just like chicken" LOL).
