Have a look at this.
These duck eggs are compared against two smaller chicken eggs. Our ducks lay two eggs a day whereas the chickens crank out one a day more or less. The shell of the duck egg is more pliable/less brittle. The membrane of the duck egg is also quite a bit tougher than the chicken egg. Taste goes to the chicken egg for me. The duck egg has a gamy flavor to it, actually they taste like a duck tastes. Still good though but not as good as a free range chicken egg. They do make fine fried egg sammiches!:teeth:

Its a shame they dont taste better. :(

I haven't had a duck egg.


I like cooked duck. But I like dark meat fowls. The white meat birds just get covered up in seasoning to get the taste. They are dryer and not as tasty IMO.

I really like duck eggs. I don't notice a gamy flavor, I think they have a richer flavor. And you're right they do make kick ass sammichs. I have heard that they are only slighly higher in cholesterol then a chicken egg.

And a lot more double-yolks, if I remember correctly!


Really? I don't think I've seen one with a double yolk, but I don't eat them all the time either.

i like to use my duck eggs to bake with. they have thicker whites. dont really taste a difference between duck and chicken eggs other than the texture when i hard boil them. now goose eggs make awesome deviled eggs. made some for a few family gatherings and they disappeared.

Idk wtf the question was, but I'm almost positive that Quail Eggs is the answer.
