There are many benefits to duck eggs:

   Duck eggs stay fresh longer due to a thicker shell and inner membrane. Because ducks naturally lay their eggs near water they probably need more protection.

   They are richer and creamier than chicken eggs with a higher yolk to white ratio. More of the yummy stuff in my opinion.

   Duck eggs are more nutrient dense ounce for ounce, duck eggs contain more Omega-3, Vitamins A & D, fatty acids, choline, folate, and iron than chicken eggs. 

   Duck eggs have more protein and it’s a different protein than chicken eggs. Therefore many people who can’t do chicken egg can eat duck eggs. Of course if you have an allergy be sure to test this out for yourself in a safe way.

   Better for baking. Because they are higher in fat, protein and have less water, duck eggs are better for baking. We weight the eggs when baking to adjust since most recipes are written for chicken eggs. A large chicken egg in it’s shell is about 60 grams our duck eggs are about 80-90 grams.
