    Hey BYCers. Today i'm having my first duck eggs for breakfast! Ive never had a duck egg before, so this is an exciting morning! First off, today i got my 4th egg from them. my first one fell and broke, and my second and third have been waiting in the fridge. the 3rd egg i got was HUGE as you can see in the pics. I will be updating this post as i'm cooking.

    by the way, i think that really long one is a double yolker. what do you think?

    well mine are 18 weeks and just started to lay. my for sure hens are magpies, my for sure drake is a Pekin, and i have a Blue Swedish that i have no idea about. he has the "male duck voice" but doesnt have the curly feather.

    Yum!! I adore duck eggs and won't ever go back to chicken if I can help it--the pale, watery little things, lol! I think you're going to love them too. Enjoy!! And let us know if that turns out to be a double yolker--my girls always lay a few funky eggs when they're first getting started--sometimes they don't have a shell, or they're tiny and round and don't have a white (those are my favorite--they're just so funny!), or they're long like a bullet, or have a big bulge in the side where the yolk is, etc. Once they settle in, the eggs will be a little more uniform in color, texture, size, and shape.

    Enjoy!

    Quote:Yeah, but how did you like it? That's the most important part.

    I second the reply above -- I far prefer duck eggs now to hen's eggs.

    Yum!! The double yolker is awesome. [​IMG]

    Now pictures can be deceiving, but I do believe that as your hens mature, those egg whites are going to firm up (so they won't run all over the pan like that), and the yolks are going to turn a deep orange (assuming they're on pasture of some sort--hens without forage may have paler yolks).
