    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. I'm a chook person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I would suggest posting on our duck section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks, and taking advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in finding out why the duck eggs are making you sick.

    One of the things I've read is that the allergies to Duck Eggs are different than the allergies to Chicken Eggs. Meaning, some people will be allergic to one, but not the other.

    This is why I NEVER fool people about what kind of egg they are eating.
