When I spotted these duck eggs in my local store, I couldn't possibly resist trying them! I followed the instructions on the box and made soft boiled eggs... What's the difference between duck eggs and chicken eggs? Duck eggs are a bit bigger, have shells that are a bit like ping pong balls (quite sturdy), the yolk was appealingly bright yellow like that from a chicken and the egg white was much firmer despite the soft boiled yolk. All in all, a good egg. Would I buy again? Probably not, as they come at a premium, but it was fun to try something new.
