In recent year, many folks have taken more of an interest in where their food comes from and the quality of that food. This phenomenon can be seen in the increase of backyard chicken keeping. There is nothing like collecting your own eggs! You know how the animal is raised, what it has consumed, and you can see and taste the difference in the quality of those eggs.
But what about duck eggs? Duck eggs are not as readily available as homegrown chicken eggs. While many folks raise their own chickens or purchase eggs at farmers markets, duck eggs are still a “rarity.” But why? Ducks are actually quieter then chickens and have been a wonderful addition to our backyard flock. Not to mention they are more consistent in laying. And ducks don’t scratch up your lawn like chickens do. Of course they will walk over your plants and flowers with their big floppy feet. Why go around when you can just go over?
Chicken eggs are the best-known, most consumed eggs in the world. And average chicken egg is about 70 grams. Chicken eggs have more water content then duck eggs.
