Duck or Quail eggs?

On the way to my Mom's house, small town, is a gas station.

The proprieter there sells these eggs from a cooler in the back from his farm.

I have heard that Duck Eggs are Way different.

Should I try them? 3.99 a dozen!

Eric, Austin Tx.

I'd try them. I hear they are delicious. Duck and quail eggs are very different in size. Duck eggs are bigger than chicken eggs while quail eggs are much smaller.

I love duck eggs. Thicker yolk and richer taste. I've never tried quail eggs but I would like to.

$3.99 for a dozen is a good price.

I find they're a little "eggier" tasting than chicken eggs. I love them scrambled with a lot of butter.

Due to the richness of duck eggs, they are often a favourite with bakers - if they can get them.
