These beautiful birds, the male with the blue feathers, must be having an interesting conversation at a lake near Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
This young boy was taught by his grandfather how to crack the pigeon eggs with an egg cutter in his right hand and to place them in the hot greased cooking cups on the grill. He was only about six years old and already learning to support himself.

As we watched we were fascinated at how the boy was so very attentive to his grandfather's continued training and example. The small pigeon eggs are in the yellow basket and after they are cracked and placed in the cooking cups they are turned over with a special spoon after they have cooked on one side for about a minute. The cooked eggs are only about one bite each. I don't think that they would be a hit in America.
