Hi,

This is an informal survey: does anyone eat duck or quail eggs with success, where chicken eggs are a no-go?

I ate a few duck and quail eggs a while back, and it was fine, but I think I was still on Entocort then.

My brain is telling me the DNA is different among different fowl, perhaps the albumen is different in different eggs--and I might not react to it. I know chicken eggs are out.

And...turkey is fine, but chicken is definitely out. And I say this because I've tested chicken and chicken eggs in the past year.

Thanks for humoring me.

Nancy

Nancy,

This question comes up every once in a while. I've often wondered why no one has ever tried turkey eggs. headscratch

Tex,

I've never thought to look for them. Would Whole Foods have them? I've never seen them in our grocery stores.

Thanks,
Connie

Hi Nancy,

Sorry I can't help. I live in rural north Florida and all I've ever seen is chicken eggs around. My Enterolab score was 10 for eggs and I'm ok with eggs in baked goods here and there.

Hi Brandy, Tex, Connie,

I've seen duck and quail eggs at the Asian grocery store, and also I've seen goose eggs there (they were huge) not turkey.

There is a local farm that sells duck eggs at the farmer's market and at the holistic pharmacy here in Austin, TX. Whole Foods is based in Austin, and I've not seen duck eggs at any of their stores here.

Just some ideas for sourcing.

Thanks for your comments.
Nancy

Hi Nancy,

Thanks for the reminder about the Asian ethnic stores. We have two on the other side of town that I need to check out. I'm in our Latin grocery store pretty frequently. Prices are cheaper than Publix at the Latin market.

You're most welcome.

Turkey eggs were once a popular menu item in this country and in Europe (back in the pioneer days of this country), but this was mostly based on wild turkey eggs. The problem with turkey egg production is that unlike chickens (which produce an egg every day), turkeys only produce about 2 eggs per week. And since a turkey requires roughly 8 times as much space as a chicken, that makes commercial turkey egg production a relatively expensive proposition. That would probably put retail prices for a dozen turkey eggs up in the $20$30 range (I'm just guessing here my estimate might be low because of the limited market). Still, there's probably a good entrepreneural opportunity waiting for someone to develop a niche market for them.

Of course we could always raise our own. Very Happy

Tex

Hi, Nancy. I just read somewhere (I believe on a paleo site) where someone said they can't eat eggs from a chicken but they can eat duck eggs. I was wondering the same thing myself. I miss eggs.

Interesting, Marcia. I might try it. I am a little scared to take the leap..but mixing up breakfast once in a blue moon could be worth the risk of trying.

I know that user JoAnn was sensitive to chook eggs, and she tolerated Duck eggs ok.

not sure if part of the acceptance of Duck and Quail eggs for MC'ers is because they are most likely fed vegetable scraps rather than a grain based feed?? Smaller farms, more likely to be free range etc
Also refer to post/discussion about problem with eggs being the soy content

Further to this, as duck, quail eggs etc are sold via specialised stores (not mainstream supermarkets) whether they are more pure ie not sprayed with vegetable soy oil, not stored and transported as much as chicken eggs.

I have eaten duck eggs, they are stronger in flavour. Yes they are more expensive albeit they are still a cheap form of good quality protein when you compare the per meal cost to things like fresh salmon, or grass fed red meats etc.
It would be worth the $10(?) outlay to see if it works for you....

Food Intolerances : Too many to list

It seems to be working for me. I really like them. And one is about the same as 2 medium chicken eggs. It is lovely to have an egg for breakfast every now and again!
I am also trying soy free chicken eggs. I seem to tolerate the yolks, at least. Not sure about the whole egg.
