Are turkey eggs edible?

Yes. But they will be larger so you may only need one egg for an omelet instead of two.

There is a lot of albumin (egg white) in those eggs. Did a turkey challenge. Scrambled one turkey egg and then one chicken egg. The chicken egg was bright like our normal egg. The turkey egg was a lighter yellow much like a store bought egg.

They are perfectly edible and they are delicious. As for yolk color, it depends on what you feed them. Even now in the middle of winter in Western NC my free-range broad-breasted turkeys eat way more grass than my chickens. My turkeys have much darker and richer egg yolks, while in my chickens it depends on how diligent they are. Some chickens prefer to eat their feed, and then just sit back and relax, they have lighter yolks. Some chickens are great foragers and they have much brighter yolks, yet, turkeys beat them all, even though I feed them the same way. If broad-breasted are such great foragers, I can only imagine how good heritage turkeys will be. I'll be buying heritage turkeys next spring.
