    So... I notice a lot of people on here have ducks. Are duck eggs good to eat? Are any non-chicken eggs good to eat?

    Besides chicken eggs, I've only ever eaten quail eggs (when I lived in France) and they were good, but small.

    And I only recently found out that chickens come in different breeds.

    So I am totally new to all this. [​IMG]

    You can eat any eggs you get, Duck, Goose, Emu(though I wouldnt try to eat more than one at a time), guinea, Turkey etc...

    Lots prefer duck eggs for bakeing.

    My SIL loves both duck and goose eggs for cooking. They have used them as much as they use their chicken eggs.

    So what is it that makes duck eggs so good for baking?

    Duck eggs are larger for one, secondly they are richer in taste which makes the baked goods taste better [​IMG]
