    I just wonder if there is any problem with selling eggs from our ducks? We only have a pair, but may be getting a couple more females this Spring. Our female has laid one to two eggs all winter. I ask as my husband developed a horrible reaction or allergy to duck eggs, and I can't even tolerate chicken eggs all the time, either. So I wondered what if that had happened to someone who had bought eggs from us? Is there any liability on our part?

    Each state will have different laws and requirements. Some of that might depend on how you sell them (Farmer’s Market?) versus out of your back door. Some might have a dollar limit, how much you sell in a year.

    I suggest you call your county extension office and chat with them. This sounds like something they can get accurate information on. It may be a case where if you wash and refrigerate your eggs you are OK but if you don’t wash or refrigerate you could be in trouble if something happens. I have no idea how South Dakota handles it.
