Farm Fresh Duck Eggs- Half Dozen
Our ducks are pasture raised and enjoy eating all the natural goodness they can forage and chase on our 7 acres (bugs, greens, grains). They are also fed poultry feed crumbles, kitchen leftovers, and treats. The ladies LOVE to eat tomatoes, peas, and watermelon. So you may notice the yolks are a deeper, darker yellow/orange in color. This is a good thing! Pastured eggs contain higher levels of vitamins A, D and E; more beta-carotene; and more omega-3s. It also indicates that the animal is healthy and happy.
These duck eggs have already been lightly washed so you must keep them in the fridge. You will find the shells are thicker and the white/yolk much thicker than chicken eggs. Duck eggs taste the same as chicken eggs, the yolk is a bit creamier. They can be prepared just like chicken eggs...scrambled, fried, etc. Be sure to cook duck eggs thoroughly to ensure the yolk is completely cooked. Duck eggs are phenomenal to use in baked goods and make results much fluffier! The nutritional makeup of duck eggs is amazing: more protein, higher levels of b-vitamins, and many others.
