Are duck eggs good to eat like chicken eggs?
To me, yes. They are different. Bigger yolks, harder shells than chicken eggs.
I don't eat mine. I bake with them but I prefer chicken eggs for egg based dishes. I don't know if it is psychological or not. I don't get nearly as many duck eggs as chicken eggs and I am trying to let as many hatch as possible.
Like Amiga said, bigger, larger yolk, the whites are thicker too. You need to cook them a little differently than chicken eggs (for like over easy type cooking). There is a thread about it on here somewhere.
We love them- I supply my whole family - grown children and grandchildren and everyone is extremely disappointed when they aren't available. I find for frying them - the heat needs to be a little lower - cook a little slower. They are great for baking - probably because the yolks are larger - if you beat them well they will make pancakes rise higher and add alot to other baked breads etc. Give them a try -
I'm an egg lover so if there are people that like them, I'm sure I will.
