A typical omelette requires 3 or 4 chicken eggs. This
would require several hundred. The amount of time and
effort to make one might be appealing to some. Plus,
who knows? It might taste pretty good.
Keep in mind, you'd need to do some marketing. These
happy free range hummingbirds who
are not harmed in
way. You might also want to remind people that you
harm a bird to harvest its eggs.
You could sell the idea by pointing out that
chickens by comparison are foul (no pun) dirty creatures
in the mud and their own filth eating grubs and insects
hummingbirds are beautiful, clean little sparkly birds
eat nectar from beautiful flowers. Disgusting avian pig vs
the flittering, glittering jewel of the bird world.
Cost would probably be about $1,000 or so making it a
bucket list item rather than standard breakfast fare
you're stupid rich.
Ostrich egg omelette
On the other end of the scale. [doctorremulac3, May 28 2018]

||"What's that? Your hands are sore from cracking all of those hummingbird eggshells?, ahhhhhhhh.
Well now your eyes are gonna be sore, 'cause you just got hummingbird Easter Egg painting duty!"
Apologies to Ben Stiller.
||Would the contrary make Ostrich eggs the commoners' omelettes, at dirt low prices?
||I'm guessing somebody's had to have done that.
||Somebody just suggested hummingbird hard boiled eggs.
||I'm not sure why that sounds disgusting to me.
||A light dynamic wondrous thing is the the antithesis of a brick ovoid.
||//See link// But is it cheap by economies of scale?
||//wicker panniers of kiwi eggs//
||I think those are rugby balls. Try hatching one, and see if the
chick does the haka.
