    I have been getting about 3 to 4 eggs a day for abou 2 months. There are 8 doz. in the fridge right now. Question is how long will they keep in there??? I have only got rid of 2 doz. Nobody want them around here. I bring up duck eggs and they don't want to hear anymore. I even tell them that they are great for baking. Duck eggs are the only eggs my gal uses for baking. Thanks for any and all help. DIGGER

    Im not sure how long they can last [​IMG] I have 5 adult ducks, three females, and two males, and all three of the girls are laying a egg a day. I almost have a doz. And Im not sure.what to do with them? Duck and chicken eggs can be out of the frig for 4 weeks. Right now all my duck eggs are out of the frig. So I need to get them to someone and quick! Lol. Good luck tho.

    Use them when you bake cakes, Great for noodels, anything you use chicken eggs for. Stuff is just great. At least I think so. My gall friend has been baking like crazy but they stay way ahead of her. LOL

    Scramble some up and feed to your dogs, or back out to the ducks and chickens.

    I feed egg to hatchlings as it is a great source of protein. Also give it to anyone injured or under the weather. The shells are a great source of calcium back into the diet as well. Our dogs love their weekly eggs for breakfast.

    Nope, I just cook them up, cool them down and serve them.
