    When there are feathers, so to speak, there are eggs. With the need for food, you will settle for anything edible even if not palatable. And how about eggs? Whether eggs of birds, wild geese or even wild chickens, the egg is a good source of nutrition. Start searching in the branches of the trees and then look in the grassy areas. Eggs can be eatern raw but it is best to be boiled. Eggs of birds are small but it can sustain your needs especially when there are many nests around.

    When I was a young bloke in W.A. there was a woman went missing from a mental institution. I was the one who found her. She had been camped out in the bush surviving on Emu eggs.

    Eggs are a good resource when you are in the wild, unfortunate they aren't available all year round. Sometimes they also are out of reach but if you have the luck to find a nest it can make for good eating when there isn't anything else.

    We don't have much such options here. Forest with birds are far away from my place. We have barren land here. And there are not many birds there. So no chance of finding eggs. There may be a chance of finding fruits around though. I guess that is one possibility in that case. Eggs of some birds such as duck, pigeon etc can be worth hunting for.

    eggs can be a good resource. To gather duck eggs find a nest, flag it so it can be spotted later. Take some of the eggs but not all. mark the eggs that are left behind. As you return to the nest take the unmarked fresh eggs.

    There has been some evidence that eating duck eggs can result in Salmonella poisoning. True or not, I recommend that you cook these eggs well until they are hard, boiled or fried.

    I eat duck eggs regularly, boiled, fried and poached, never had any problems.
