    My boyfriend gets heartburn fron chicken eggs. I've read that duck eggs are more alkaline than chicken eggs, that chicken eggs are quite acidic. Does anyone know if eating duck eggs will produce less heartburn? He loves eggs, I'd hate for him to have to give them up. Thanks.

    Probably the only way to know is to have him try some. Duck eggs give me an upset stomach. That's no problem for me though as I don't like the taste. Turkey eggs are delicious though. Maybe he could eat quail eggs???

    Thanks. We're going to try duck eggs as soon as we get some.
