A couple of weeks ago a pair of geese settled to make a nest in the middle of the parking lot of our clinic. Definitely not a quiet place for a nesting mother as there’s heavy traffic of cars and people in this area. The mother and father goose will angrily honk and chase any person or car who would come near their nest. This made a ruckus outside the clinic but also provided some entertainment for us as we can see the nest just outside our window.
But yesterday, I noticed that the nest was unguarded. I was waiting for the mother and father goose to return, but after 2 days of not seeing them, I assumed that the nest was abandoned. What happened?
Can these eggs be made into “balut?”
(* Balut is fertilized bird egg, usually duck’s egg, that is boiled or steamed and eaten from the shell. It is a Filipino delicacy.)
You should call the animal rescue people so those eggs can be incubated so they have the chance of surviving! 😔
I think it may be too late. The past 2 days was quite cold with almost freezing temperature. But thank you for reading.
No worries. It was very interesting 👍
I’m from Pateros. Relatives who migrated to Australia made balut there but, strangely, not from duck eggs but chicken eggs. Guess they tasted better. (Leo)
Should we try geese egg? It’s much bigger!
I actually thought about doing that to an ostrich egg but that would be too gruesome.
Ostrich egg balut? It’s like eating a full grown chicken!
