Hi All. Yep, you read it right. I'm intolerant to duck eggs. How incredibly frustrating it is to have put all that time, money, and energy into beginning my flock, only to find, after eating a few eggs, that I don't do well with them. I've tried cooking them several different ways, took a 2 month break from all eggs, then tried duck eggs again, ate duck eggs one night and chicken eggs the next...all comes back to duck eggs not working for me. After doing a bit of research, I've learned that many other people have similar sensitivities to duck eggs. My specific reactions are a mild case of asthma, mild heartburn, and a general feeling of malaise. This article, brief though it is, provided the most valuable information: "We report a patient with an IgE-mediated allergy to egg white from duck and goose without hen egg allergy. Ovalbumin seems to be the responsible protein. The antigenic determinant of this protein seems to be specific of order Anseriforme and it is not present in the ovalbumin of order Galliforme." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10756237 This really stinks because I like my ducks. They make me smile, and are great for my garden. My set up is such, though, that I can only have a few birds, and they have to 'earn' their keep in eggs. This means I'm going to have to give my flock away, and start all over with chickens (which I don't particularly care for...they're too close in resemblance to their reptilian roots). Completely and totally bummed in PA. Tahai.
