    I've never eaten a duck egg before.

    Do they taste like a chicken egg? What about guinea(sp?) eggs? [​IMG]

    When cooking, is one duck egg equivalent to two chicken eggs? [​IMG]

    Duck eggs are like chicken eggs, but some say the taste is stronger. Scrambled is better then fried, the texture to me, is more rubbery!
    I bake with my duck eggs, and I use 1 duck egg for every 2 chicken.
    I do not like to eat the duck eggs, myself, but baking with them makes breads and cakes so much better.
    I also use them in meatloaf and meatballs and find no taste difference.
    Some people that are not able to eat eggs, can eat duck eggs.
    I have never tried other poultry eggs, besides chicken, duck and goose.

    Great info, Thanks!

    Somehow I had a feeling they would be more rubbery....isn't that funny?
