Egg Allergies Chicken vs. Duck????

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I just started getting some eggs from my duck, so I decided to research a little about them.  I noticed that I kept seeing ads selling duck eggs promoted for people with allegies to chicken eggs?  Is this a common replacement? Are most people that are alergic to chicken eggs able to eat duck eggs?  The reason that I ask is that a good friend of mine has two children allergic to eggs, and I thought I might be able to help him out.  Any info would be appreciated, or if this should be in a different forum please move it.

I'm not a doctor but I have provided a lady I know with duck eggs for years.She claimed that she had bad reactions with chicken eggs but could eat duck eggs. She said she had checked with her doctor who advised her to go easy on the duck eggs since her allegery could shift to include duck eggs. She would take a half dozen/week during the high laying season. and just about all I had when the season was over. I liked duck eggs for baking but as long as I could get free ranged chicken eggs with some flavor, I was happy to help her out.

Same story here.  I sell duck eggs to a lady that can not eat chicken eggs.  Why there is a difference, I do not know.    That is all she told me.

thanks for the response

My son and husband are allergic to chicken eggs but can eat duck eggs.  It is because the protein in duck eggs is completely different from that in chicken eggs.  I learned that after asking many, many allergists and researching it myself.

Hope that helps.
