Duck eggs - Besides pasture grasses, our ducks eat all the bugs they can find, plus a balanced, locally produced feed containing 16% protein, grain, vitamins, and minerals. They do not eat fish or fish by-products to prevent "off flavors" from contaminating the rich flavor of our eggs, nor do they eat any meat by-products.    

What is the difference between duck eggs and chicken eggs?

Duck eggs are creamier and have more nutrients and vitamins than chicken eggs. They have a slightly thicker shell and longer shelf life. They have 9 grams of protein (compared to 6 grams in a hen's egg), twice the amount of iron, vitamin A and vitamin B-6, five times the amount of vitamin B-12, more calcium, magnesium, thiamin and niacin than chicken eggs. They are alkaline, while chicken eggs are acidic. Because the composition of duck eggs differs so much from chicken eggs, many people who are allergic to chicken eggs are able to eat duck eggs without problem. Duck eggs can be used just like chicken eggs and are delicious fried, poached, scrambled or in omlettes. Because of the higher protein levels, duck eggs give more loft to baked goods and they are especially good in recipes where the yolk is important - sauces, custards, etc. Yum!
