    Duck eggs are fabulous! In fact, we prefer them to chicken eggs in a wide variety of foods. Pasta, French toast, pancakes, waffles, scrambled , over easy, you name it, they improve everything. You simply cannot go wrong with duck eggs. [​IMG] Everyone we know who has been reluctant and a little afraid to try them has ended up in love!

    I'm glad it tastes good. :) I'm nervous to try it because I'm so used to chicken eggs lol do the regular egg things taste good with duck eggs? and wait... Not specific duck egg related but you put eggs in pancakes? But that's good if it's not too often, don't wanna bug the neighbors lol do you think it's louder than chickens? And ohh okay, that doesn't sound too bad then

    Pancakes, French toast, waffles, all yep. Never heard of them in Pasta but not surprised. Ducks are quieter for the most part. Yes the regular egg things taste great with duck. At least you're not trying peafowl eggs. Though they are still good, mainly because they are in between chicken and duck.

    I've never heard of it in pancakes or waffles. I know French Toast requires it but I don't recall pancakes. Sounds interesting. Really? Well maybe I should be getting ducks then! :p
    But wait why? Are they gross?

    Okay I asked my dad if he ever heard of eggs in pancakes and he said "yes of course!" "In PANCAKES!?" "To make real pancakes, yeah" so clearly I'm just oblivious lmao we've been just having the mix lately xD

    Here's my group! This is their usual volume, but they occasionally do start yelling if they feel they've gone too long without treats (Gwaine, the chocolate brown one, is particularly entitled). I wanted runners because I love their personalities and appearance and delicious eggs and slug-eating, but I seem to have ended up with a Cayuga (mix?) drake, which is fine. Poor Zuko just looks kind of dumpy next to the wine-bottle silhouettes of the rest of the group. He and Azula (the runner-shaped black one) just popped drake feathers this week, and in this video, you can hear Azula's super manly quack!

    No they're really good but when someone hears peafowl eggs I have heard people think it's too exotic and duck is exotic enough, or people act like it's bad luck to eat peafowl eggs though it's not.
