    Are scrambled duck eggs ok for chicks and ducklings as a treat? Chicken eggs are good for them but what about duck? Higher in protein and fat I guess but I don't know

    Since chickens will eat virtually anything I can't see how duck eggs (when cooked) could be harmful for them.

    Just make sure they are getting grit if you are giving them treats.
