My friend from whom I get eggs, often trading goat milk for eggs, has several ducks that lay eggs. Her DH is squeamish about eating anything other than a chicken egg, so she gives all her duck eggs to me! They are wonderful. An egg is and egg is an egg, I'd like to say. I find the duck eggs to be a little more tender when cooked. The yolk/white ratio is higher, so they, ounce for ounce, are more nutritious. They are delicious. People are so funny. I'm not complaining though!
It's the same sort of thing with the milk. Most folks that I know use milk from the grocery store. If I offer them some raw goat milk to drink, some of them will try it. It is interesting to watch. They take a little sip, and look rather confused, and say, "It tastes like milk." Imagine that!
UPDATE: Because of what Megan posted below, I am now wondering if eggs from different species of birds could cause problems to some people. Sigh.... "Pride goeth before a fall." If any of you know anything about this, I would greatly appreciate some feedback. Thanks, Megan.
