Duck, Duck . . . Duck Eggs!

The chicken house culling of last week worked, and production has picked up! Even the ducks have started laying. Any guesses which 3 eggs are theirs? :)


  1. I'll be interested to hear how you feel they (the duck eggs) compare with chicken eggs when you sample them. Be sure to let us know. :o)

  2. We had a duck egg for the first time today - Tom had one fried duck egg and one fried chicken egg to compare.

    I didn't taste them ('cause I don't like fried eggs all that much), but he said he couldn't taste any difference!

    The one thing I did notice, though, is that the size and/or consistency of the yolk is different 'cause they both cooked for the same amount of time . . . and the chicken egg was "over-hard" and the duck egg came out "over-easy".

  3. How many chickens, ducks etc do you have? And how many eggs do you collect each day? I'm trying to figure out my spring chick order... And oh yes, what are the greenish-tinged ones towards the front (I think they're greenish.. or my monitor is on it's way out!)
