    My son has a pretty special diet and doesn't do well on chicken eggs. I was wanting to try duck eggs before I started raising them for him. I am near Memphis, Tn. in N. Mississippi. I am willing to do some driving if needed. Thanks.

    You might want to try www.localharvest.org for eggs in your area. People on there often sell more than vegetables.

    Even if someone just says they sell chicken eggs, you might contact them and ask about duck eggs. Most people that have chickens also have ducks, but might not advertise the eggs since they aren't as popular.

    Hello dadof4,
    Where do you live? I live over here in Florence Alabama just down Highway 72 from Memphis and up the Natchez Trace Highway about 25 miles. I know it is about 170 miles from my house to Tunica so I'm guessing it's about 130-140 miles from your house. I have duck eggs I would give you to try if you were going to be in the area if you don't find any closer.

    I don't know when I'm going back to Tunica again but probably some time next month.

    Jayare

    I am right outside of Holly Springs, off 78 and about 10 miles from the 72 and 302 intersection. If you ever head back this way let me know. Thanks for the offer.​
