Has anyone made these? There are many Asians around here that may want the unhatched eggs from my incubator. What are the details for making them?

The idea would turn my stomach, but here's a link for you Balut Some Asian cultures eat things I would never dream of eating.

Thanks Foehn, I hadn't found that site yet.

My ad, posted on CL, brought no responses for the balut ready eggs. Into the compost pile they go.

I've never made them but understand that they are cooked while the embryo is still alive and, hence, fresh. I don't think one could use dead-in-shell chicks for balut.

I have tried it once with my friends when we spend our vacation in the Philippines. It's not that bad.

Balut is great! We love it here in the Philippines. The usual eggs used are duck eggs. Don't know how they exactly prepare, I just enjoy eating them haha. But I know they steam/boil them for some time
