    Hi. I am really wanting some duck eggs to eat. Don't care if they are fertile or not, just want them to be FRESH, of course. [​IMG] I messaged someone on here who said they had an overabundance and never heard back, so I am not sure if this question seems offensive? I really hope not, I am serious and don't know of any local source. Was thinking just whatever could fit in a flat rate box to keep the shipping reasonable and, of course, I wouldn't want to pay as much as I would for hatching eggs.....just want to see if this is something my family would be interested in eating if we decided to raise some of our own. If you would be interested in selling me some, please quote me a price.

    Thanks a bunch!!!

    It actually is slightly offensive.

  3. No , i dont find it offensive in anyway at all .

    If i had enough duck eggs i would sell them for eating , its not no big deal. I like to use duck eggs for baking breads and cakes and etc.

    Hope you find somebody that will sell you and your family some to try .

    i get 1-2 duck eggs a day...we dont really eat them here...not because they are bad or anything..its just we have planty of chicken eggs to eat... [​IMG] we do sometimes add them to our scrambled eggs and they really make them nice and creamy.. [​IMG] i can probably send you like 6 or so sometime this week...its not very many for your family though... [​IMG] sorry...let me know if noone else with more eggs dosent chime in here...i'll be glad to send you what we have ;o)

    Thanks guys. You are great as always. I had two people PM me and will probably buy from both and go on a baking frenzy. [​IMG] The kids won't complain, for sure! Plus I plan to share a few with my mom's family to try. Please, tell why it is offensive? i truly would like to know. I am pretty sure most on here eat eggs.
