Can you eat Duck Eggs? If so how do you eat them, just as you would a chicken egg? How do they taste?

I've never tried them, I've never kept ducks either, but I heard they are really rich and great to bake with.

lots of people eat duck eggs just like chicken eggs......lots of people bake with them....they say duck eggs make the cakes so good.  i can't get past how nasty our ducks are so I can't eat the eggs.

The eggs are delcicious!  I scramble them ,and they're better than any chicken egg I've ever had!

I LOVE to eat my Cayuga's eggs. The yolks seem a little more dense then my chicken eggs. Most people cant tell the difference. I give friends both duck and chicken eggs and have them tell me which ones they like best....hehehehe...sneeky of me!!!

Do they taste different? If you tasted them side by side could you tell them apart?

One of my daughters is allergic to chicken and chicken eggs.  Duck eggs have been a lifesaver for us!  I use them in all of my baking now, they make the best cookies.  Yummy!  I think when they are scrammbled or fried they are a little firmer then chicken eggs, but we like that.  Also because they can be a bit bigger we use 2 in recipes that call for 3.  If the recipe only calls for 1 or 2 I just use what it calls for.  Have fun trying them:)

To me they taste "butterier" than chicken eggs tongue

I LOVE my chickens and ducks and geese!  Life just wouldn't be the same without some animals in it...
