    NYT: The first thing you notice about a duck egg is its size. It’s a good deal bigger than a chicken egg, and when you crack one open, the yolk is shockingly large. The second thing you notice is the moment anyone finds out that you’re cooking duck eggs, your locavore street cred doubles. As with garlic scapes or ramps, buying them signals to other serious foodies that you mean business.

    Khaki Campbell is a great egg laying breed....one of the most prolific egg layers, even compared to chickens. Higher protein in duck eggs, which bakers love. The whites tend to be more dense, which throws some people off. I love them!

    A couple friends who are allergic to chicken eggs can eat duck eggs. Both have flocks now and I get eggs from time to time from them. Quite yummy.

    Haven't had one in years. Can't remember if there's anything different about them other than being a bit larger.

    The flavour of eggs is mainly dependant on what the bird eats, which is why free-range eggs taste different from battery-cage eggs.
