    Hi everyone. I have ducks and I would like to sell their eggs once they start laying. I am unable to find information regarding the regulations for duck eggs. Everything I am finding is for chicken eggs only. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks+ [​IMG]

    My state doesn't make a distinction between chicken eggs and other poultry eggs. All must abide by the same rules.

    This may be a question for your local at extension agent [​IMG]

    Yes, I asked and never got a response, sadly. Chicken eggs are clearly regated but not waterfowl and they do make a distinction here. So I seem to be getting nowhere. I called every government agency in the state of texas and they all send me to another agency and round and round it goes.

    Ugh. Try searching for farm stand sales or farmers market sales + your area of Texas.

    If that fails maybe someone in the Texas area can provide info.

    Sorry it's been so hard to find out what you need to do
