Fowl Play in Tallinn

Quail, chicken, or ostrich? I just wanted eggs, but I did a double-take when I saw this display at a Tallinn, Estonia supermarket.

But after a bit of currency conversion, the contents of my omelette became more obvious. The price for one dozen quail eggs is $3, and chicken eggs ring in at $4. However, before you invite your friends over for an ostrich-egg brunch, know that one egg will set you back $53! And even though one ostrich egg is equivalent to 2 dozen chicken eggs, the math clearly favors the lowly chicken.

I bought a dozen chicken eggs, but if you’re curious about exotic egg recipes and cooking ideas (and that the ostrich egg may require a saw to open, and an hour to boil), check this website.

Happy Trails,
James
