Duck eggs are  ALKALINE   and Chicken eggs are ACID.

Where are you getting the alkaline-acid information?

4. Duck Eggs are an Alkaline producing food, one of the few foods that leave your body more alkaline which is a great benefit to cancer patients as cancer cells do not thrive in an alkaline environment. Chicken eggs are an acid food leaving your body more acid.

Hmmm, fascinating.  I do know that in at least some cultures, duck eggs are reserved for those who're not feeling well - they are considered medicinal.

 

And there are differences in the amounts of certain minerals in the eggs - according to the USDA.

In the links, it states that the alkalinity of the duck eggs is  anti-cancer food.

Sorry, but this is pseudoscience.  The body naturally regulates its pH within a very narrow spectrum.   

 

 

The unsubstantiated theory is based on lab studies that suggest cancer cells thrive in an acidic (low pH) environment, but cannot survive in alkaline (high pH) surroundings. While these findings are accurate, they apply only to cells in an isolated lab setting. Altering the cell environment of the human body to create a less-acidic, less-cancer-friendly environment is virtually impossible.

While proponents of this myth argue that avoiding certain foods and eating others can change the body’s pH level, these claims stand in stark contrast to everything we know about the chemistry of the human body. Acid-base balance is tightly regulated by several mechanisms, among them kidney and respiratory functions. Even slight changes to your body’s pH are life-threatening events. Patients with kidney disease and pulmonary dysfunction, for example, often rely on dialysis machines and mechanical ventilators (respectively) to avoid even small disruption of acid-base balance.

If the public would know more about the value of the DUCK egg, there would be a better market for the duck egg.  So many people are allergic to the Chicken egg through no fault of their own. I am so thank full to learn that I can enjoy an egg if it is duck egg. No one appreciates a duck egg more then a person that can not have chicken eggs. There is so much more value in nutrients in a duck egg then a chicken egg.It is worth while checking in to if one needs to build up their health. My area is over stocked with BYC  organic chicken eggs, but not the BYB organic duck eggs. I had to get my own ducks to get my own duck eggs.
