    5 I want DUCK EGGS (to eat). Where can I get some?

    So, I'm interested in getting some duck eggs to eat. I've never had them, and want to try them at least once. I need to find some close to Austin if possible.

    Any ideas?

    Here's a list of where you can get them. Google is your friend.

    Duck eggs instead of chicken eggs make for fluffier cakes.

    Pretty sure you can get them at Whole Foods, no need to online order or buy from some specialty place.

    They're GREAT! A little rich but yum. The only one I've had I raided from a mallard nested next to the house. Wanted more but nature and all that. Besides the possibility of getting a rotten one. Lol.

    I tried google and wasn't really successful. Lots of duck eggs for breeding. Didn't see any for eating. The places that do have them appear to be out. Hence this thread.

    Want duck eggs You start with a duck.

    Look up the local agricultural extension and ask about getting in touch with the 4-H Club group in your area they many be able to tell you who has duck and eggs for sale.

    What - white people don't own ducks??

    The young man we bought this place from has enough ducks that they have their own Great Pyr as a guard dog.

    We used to have some ducks and the eggs were great. They are a lot richer and bigger than chicken eggs. You'll like them.

    My granddaughter has chickens and ducks. The ducks aren't quite old enough to start laying yet, but I'll be curious to taste one of their eggs when they do. The chicken eggs are awesome though. Her kids have become very picky about what kind of eggs they eat, because there IS a difference. I love it that she's so in to raising a garden, along with her chickens and ducks. Just proves that not ALL millennials are brain dead. Hope you find some duck eggs, and that you will enjoy them.

    If you have any Asian grocery stores in your area check with them. Around here (SF Bay Area) they are the ones that regularly carry duck eggs in my experience.

    We use duck eggs and quail eggs from Whole Foods, a couple of local grocers, or any of several farmer's markets, here.

    Not uncommon for kids with vaccine injury to be allergic to chicken eggs (many vaccines are incubated in chicken eggs.)

    Turns out that egg allergies are usually species-specific (i.e., chicken egg.) Thus we first tried quail eggs and then found duck eggs. What a relief, as duck eggs are easy to substitute, one for one, for "cluck" eggs. (Versus cracking a few dozen quail eggs for a cake or a decent omelette!)

    There is at least one company in Southern California that used to ship duck eggs. Used to keep their info on the frig. Just looked, not there. Will have to check with the local store that uses them.

    Maybe our palates are simply unsophisticated but we don't taste much difference, Dennis.


    ETA: BTW, duck eggs aren't cheap - around a dollar per egg.

    I rarely get to our farmer's market in time to get any. For a while I had a source at work but I'm retired now. Some day I'll have ducks, you are on the right path...they are terrific, best eggs ever - and I've raised chickens. Hope you have success!!

    Um, if they're selling them for "breeding" they are fine for eating. They are just fertile eggs, you'll never know the difference it's so miniscule. Fertile eggs don't begin to develop until they are at a raised temperature either from the hen setting on them or they are put into an incubator.

    Anyone selling fertile eggs for incubating is selling nice fresh eggs...

    IMO, duck eggs are best poached over easy, over good toasted rye.

    ETA, if you live with dogs, it may be a great payback and your dogs will be vary jealous.

    Really though if you know how to correctly poach.a egg, duck eggs are best poached, and you get the full taste and best health benefits from them this way. Even better for you if the rye is toasted in frying pan with a bit of coconut oil.

    Duck on toasted rye, yummy!

    Duck eggs tend to produce a very smelly after effect if your system isn't used to them.

    I was on a duck egg thing a few years ago after never having tried them. They were good, had a strong richness to them, heartier than chicken eggs. Definitely a unique flavor compared to chicken eggs but not too different. Didn't stick with them though because it was out of my way to get them and the taste seemed to stick with me for the whole day.

    Try DuckDuckgo.com.....for duck eggs......hah!

    I bought 2 doz eggs right from the farm yesterday......I ate the tallest one and it was a double yolker, but my DH got another big one and it was a triple-flat yolker.....never seen anything like it, and no burps from eating them. $3 per dozen delivered.....bargain.

    Never tried a duck egg.....

    Whole Foods near me has them. Dean and Deluca too.

    IMHO I wouldn't buy from a non-store entity (like a farmer) unless you know and trust that person-then its better than a store.

    Its too much of a risk of getting sick. Nothing like a nice dose of salmonella with your eggs.

    Locally, the health food/vitamin store carries duck eggs, but they're pretty pricey at $7.50/dozen. After we got ducks and I tasted the eggs, I never used chicken eggs for anything but baking. Duck eggs are far superior, imo.

    Today was errand day, and I went by Whole Foods, and picked up some duck eggs and mizythra cheese. Yummy. Going to try an egg later.

    Taste test results

    I'll describe as best I can. I just fried one up in butter. Nothing special in terms of seasoning, just a little salt and pepper. The white had a slightly different flavor than a chicken egg, but nothing stood out. However, the consistency of the white was rubbery compared to a chicken egg. The yolk however, had a distinct musky flavor. I can't define it better than that. Tomorrow, I'll scramble up a couple, and add mushrooms and cheese, and we'll see what that's like.

    I was going to wait to see what you thought before I said anything. Yup, to me they are tough, and have a strong flavor. Not a fan myself.

    Try cooking on lower heat. I find flash fried eggs to be tough no matter what. It takes me twice the time of a normal person but they don't get tough. I also "float" them in butter.

    Telling you...the best way to cook a duck egg is by poaching it over easy.

    Should look like this.....

    "Over" whatever is frying. Over means flip it over, and easy means soft, and then there's over medium and over hard. Unflipped is "sunny side up". Poached is poached, either in water or milk. I do have an egg poacher though, and will try your suggestion. Though "easy" (semi-runny) is not something I'll eat. It's always a nice medium for me. I have enough of these to try multiple methodologies in preparation.

    Thanks!
