Gross Duck Egg


Mar 10, 2018
Maynard, MA
I went to cook myself up a duck egg this morning. Right on top of the basket of our most recent duck eggs was an egg quite obviously larger than the rest. I decided to give it a try, and as I cracked it in to a bowl, my entire appetite flew out the window.

I immediately knew something was wrong for two reasons. First, the normally clear part of the egg came out a brownish color. And then, an absolutely horrible stench followed. Then out drops the yolk, which was lumpy and not liquid at all, accompanied by a bunch of pinkish/red chunks.

Is one of my ducks dying? Do I need to go break the news to them?

But seriously, does anyone know what might've caused this, or what even IS this?

Sell them as diet eggs. It’s all about marketing.
