    I have tried on 2 occasions to eat duck eggs, first was an omelet, and within 3 hours I was puking my guts up among other things and didn't think much about it. We blamed it on maybe the mayo that I had put on the omelet not knowing that it was and could be the duck eggs. In about a week or so, I fixed some more duck eggs, this time I scrambled them. Within a few hours again, I was puking my guts up among other things.. We realized then that I must be allergic to the duck eggs. My husband and our son ate the same thing I did and it did not affect them, just me... I googled "duck eggs making you sick" and found out that I am not the only one it affected that way.. There will not be a 3rd time for me with the duck eggs... I have a flock of Barred Rock chickens and have eaten chicken eggs all my life and they have never made me sick... I love my chickens... Thanks and hope this helps someone else...[​IMG]

    Similar thing happened to me, only I was able to eat them for a couple of months before I developed a sensitivity, which then also made me get sick from chicken eggs and even chicken sometimes. Took 3 instances of vomiting for 6 hours at a time to put it all together. I quit all eggs for about 6 months, and I can now eat chicken eggs (and chicken) just fine again. Sucks to have all these free eggs around and can't make use of them, lol.

    There is also another thread starter on this same subject . Duck eggs a much higher on the fat content so if your gallbladder is not producing enough bile, you may have gas or indigestion. Gas -X supplements do help some, I take Ox bile supplements .
    The best way that they agree with me is to make an omelet, in a non stick pan using s little coconut oil.
    As rich as the duck egg is, I do not use mayo or any other fatty product with it.
    I am allergic to chicken eggs, so even though I need to use gas-X or Bile Salts,to help digest.
    Some also believe duck eggs are detoxing the body by causing discomfort. Some say to get tested for duck eggs allergy.
    Also if your ducks are eating the product in their feed that you are allergic to like soy, corn, wheat. one might have to change the ducks feed. I would never us any thing with fish in the feed because it will effect the taste of the egg.
    I have some discomfort and I am determine`d to work with it because of the value of the duck egg.

    I also am experiencing this. I had no issue the first few times having duck eggs, but now I have severe stomach cramping after eating even small amounts. I've even tried preparing them different ways to see if that makes a difference. Not sure what I'll do with my 21 eggs a week :(

    Same here, I am getting 14 eggs per week and although it did not affect my husband and son, they are afraid to eat them now because how violently ill I got after eating them. They said they don't want to test that theory... because it took me eating them a few times before they made me sick.. I definitely am not ever going to eat them again.. puking is not a good feeling for me.. I'll pass.... I don't even want any kind of egg right now, but I'm sure that will pass... Thanks...

    We mostly hatch our duck eggs but we eat the cold weather eggs. I don't like the taste of duck or chicken eggs too much so we use them to make brownies. There is a lower concentrate of egg when you bake with them and duck eggs make the best brownies. I won't ever use chicken eggs for brownies again! I also mostly use chicken eggs in baking when we are not hatching them but I will eat them hard boiled and make egg salad so they are not as concentrated. The texture and taste of straight eggs make me sick, lol.

    I would suggest reading the labels on your duck feed. Are there any chemicals or medication, in the feed. Some even have fish by products in it. When we are able to get them on green pasture, they will have clover and bugs, I make sure
    they always have clean water to drink. I change their water many times a day. and I only have six. I even got a good quality kitty kibbles with our the grains. and read the label . There are great products in kibble`s. Right now my ducks are ready for the green pasture. It was nice today so I let them out in a dry pen with a two tubs of water for them to bath.
    All of them were soaked to the skin. they are in the coop with heat lamps to dry off. I had a chance to clean and reorganize their coop. I try`d boil`d eggs but they felt greasy after they were peel`d and cold. I will stay with the omelet `s,
    and french bread and baking. If you are allergic to the feed products, that you are feeding your ducks, It may effect you too.
