I'm so excited.  They're not terribly easy to find and when you can find them, they're pretty expensive and come from farms that I don't know about.

For us and the dogs  Grin

I bought them with the dogs in mind, but, we'll eat some, too.  I want to have a steady supply mainly for allergy dogs.  We do make foods for quite a few and many are on duck based diets so duck eggs will be good to have around.

When cooked, they tend to be firmer than chicken eggs, have larger yolks and do have a slight difference in taste.  I haven't had them myself in years but have a feeling we'll be having some for breakfast this weekend.

There is an Asian market here that sells duck, goose, and quail eggs. I bought the quail eggs once and they were rotten so I never tried anything else. Tongue

Duck eggs are actually very pretty.  The Mallard eggs have a light green tint to them.

That's the first thing I thought of, Terri.   rotflmao

Sadly, I haven't tried them yet.  Skipped brunch yesterday for a hike up the side of a mountain.

OK - I had duck eggs.  They are very good.  Personally, I didn't notice a difference in taste, but, I always eat farm fresh chicken eggs from naturally raised chickens, at the very least I buy from the local health food store, not grocery store eggs.  There is a big difference in taste there and they say if you eat grocery store chicken eggs, you will notice quite a difference in taste with duck eggs.
