[QUOTE=BarbeyGirl;89528]Yep. Duck eggs have a higher yolk percentage than do chicken eggs. The bad news is that duck eggs are fairly pricey ($4.50/dozen around these parts). My solution? I've just purchased a bunch of ducklings to raise for eggs and meat! Aren't they cute?
OMG! I love ducks! I had three of them last summer, but in a city yard they were impossible. Besides being insanely noisy and very demanding, they completely tore up the yard. They need to have water in order to eat properly and wash out their nostrils, and then they take that water and wet the ground with it, then drill down with their bills much further than you'd think possible. Between the noise and the mess, and the fact that a family member was horribly allergic to the eggs, I had to find a new home for them. Now I have three chickens, and it's like night and day. The chickens are much quieter and way less messy. But, at the end of the day, I'd have ducks again if I had an acreage, just not suitable for the city.
Ive had dinner and that pic made me wanna go make it again!
Hey just bigging up the poll! two clicks from you is great for my research thx!
I don't know if you could actually sell a product with extra yolk... except to Primal converts!
I've always wanted to find an egg with a double yolk but it hasn't happened to me yet!
Barbey, those chicks are cute!
I would love to try duck eggs. Around here, we only get chicken even though there is a huge lake.
Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."--Ferris Bueller, 1986

Have you tried Emu eggs? One is equivalent to 10 chicken eggs. We get ours from our Farmers Market. Yummm
Aren't they pretty?
cook for life!
I vote for more yolk! I spent 3 months in Africa doing some anthropological research. I stayed at this bed and breakfast type place in the country and had an ostrich egg omelet every morning for breakfast. But ONE omelet from ONE egg fed 10 people.
