They're a water fowl like a goose or a duck so I assume they'd probably taste pretty good. You never hear about them being a source of food though.

Their is a local brook just down from my house, when I was younger we would always god own and feed the swans bread crumbs. It never crossed my mind to ever eat a swan,


I guess crazier things have happened, I'll let someone else try this one out and let me know how it goes. For now I'll stick to chicken!

Over here in Britain, I think it's illegal to even kill a swan. Something to do with the Queen.

I think the Queen can as all Swans are her property (something like that anyway...)

I'd imagine it might be a little greasy like duck and goose.

That's the one. I knew it was something like that. Thing is, swans need a killin' they're evil little buggers. One bit me when I was little.
But I did not cry, I'm a big boy!

I'd never considered Swan's as a food source either. I see them all the time in the summer here. They are beautiful.

Never eaten one though


I think it's illegal to hunt them here, though.

Here you go this is why Swans belong to the Queen.

She protects them apparantly.

But as for the adults, it's illegal to kill them in Canada. :shk:

But if I ever got the chance to cook one I'd stuff it with a wild turkey that was stuffed with a duck that had been stuffed with a game hen that had been stuffed with a canary that had been stuffed with a hummingbird.


I'm getting hungry just thinking about it..............
There's gotta be a lot of meat on a bird this size.




Here's Hinterlands Who's Who on Trumpeter Swans.



www.hww.ca...

Trumpeter Swan

This swan

* pumps its feet up and down over edible roots to create a current of water that frees the roots from the surrounding mud
* may live in captivity for up to 35 years, but in the wild, swans generally live for less than 12 years
* has an unusually dense layer of down that seems to make it almost impervious to the cold
* was once hunted and harassed to the point where in 1933 there were only 77 Trumpeter Swans breeding in Canada and 50 breeding in the United States

Yeah, they'll pretty much go gansta on you if you get near them.


It's funny watching people run for their lives with a goose or a swan running after them, wings a flappin'.

Peace

What an image that is! You'd probably be able to fit it all in there, too!

LMAO

Yes, they do. Never had one run after me. I've been bitten by a duck before, didn't hurt much.

My daughter got bit by an Ostrich when she was three. Now THAT hurt. Left a big bruise on her lil hand
I wouldn't want one of them running after me. Speaking of Ostrich, they're not that bad tasting.

Yeah, those ostrich don't play around either. They have a ranch here in Texas called YO Ranch that has them. When I was about 12 or so I my schoolmates and I went there on a field trip. There was one ostrich from hell that wouldn't leave my damned baseball cap alone. It kept running after me and stalking me like the Terminator.
Eventually I had to give up my cap because it kept pecking at my head. It was my cap or my life.

I had to rescue my nephew from a flock of 40-50 of these evil birds.
He was only 10 at the time and the birds chased him across a pasture with him in the lead screaming in fear. It looked like a scene from Jurassic Park when the stampede happened. I think the birds thought he had food, and they didn't want to hurt him.

They make a wierd thumping sound in their breasts that can be very eerie and a bit frightening.

BEWARE THE EVIL EMU.......


EDIT: Emu make a good meal, I've had them for dinner a few times. The best way to eat them is ground up into hamburger and fried as a patty with BBQ sauce and mushrooms, and a good sharp chedder melted on the bun.
Same goes for ostrich...............

When I saw that picture the music from The Omen started playing in my head. Remember when Damien was about to make something bad happen to somebody the music would start chanting "ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.


I was watching an episode of the Iron Chef and the Japanese dude was using an ostrich egg. He damn near needed an acetylene torch to get the freakin' thing open. Dude was sweatin' bullets when he finally cracked it open.

Peace

How did he get chased by Emu? Break into the zoo or something? Or are they wild where you live? Because that would rock.

Swan-

You have to marinate the meat overnight in buttermilk. Don't overcook it. It dries out pretty quickly. Best to leave it a little pink, like duck. Seared over an open fire is best. Serve with sauteed fiddlehead ferns and a nice chianti. They taste a lot like spotted owl.

It's too bad there are so few left. I think the pacific northwest is down to a few thousand breeding pairs now.

No we didn't climb the fence at the zoo, but now you've got me thinking. :shk:
The chase scene happened at a farm in Ontario, Canada. They raise emu for meat, and they also sell breeding stock for other farmers.
It would be cool to have emu just walking around in the wild though, but alas, not where I live...........

I've heard that ostrich eggs a very tough to open, and I'm not sure I'd want to eat one anyway.
I have an emu egg sitting on my desk right now and the thing is a dark green with a very textured surface. A bird had hatched out of the egg and I kept all the pieces and glued it back together. It's kinda a neat coversation piece.

Who in their right mind would want to kill a swan and eat it :shk:

I tried to find a receipe and could not actually find one although I did find one site that stated you can kill a trundra swan in ND.

It also made some mention that it tasted like filet mignon or at least a portion of it did.

I think it is illegal to kill them here also
