Are Duck Eggs Yum Yum?

I decided to try my duck eggs, and OHhh MY GAWD! I am forever ruined. I will never really like a chicken egg the way I LOvEd the duck eggs, ever again.
The shells were harder to crack open, and when they did the biggest darkest yellow came gooping out into the pan. Perfectly firm, perfectly shaped. In fact, when i was cooking it, it held it's shape impressively better then chicken eggs - so i got to make two flawless "fried eggs" with the wet dippy middle! My favorite kind, that never seems to work out... until now.

The duck eggs taste soooo good, I could not believe how much richer, healthier, more dense, flavorful, and delicious they were ... it was like tasting what I always wished a chicken egg could be but had always fell a little short of being what i wanted.
Ok...
so basically, i fucking love duck eggs!!! mmm! If you have not tried them before, do it.

I've eaten duck eggs (when we lived in Africa); they're delicious...now, for a bit of grits...

We have three ducks... and I love them waaaayyy better than all the chickens we have had over the years. Better eggs, more of them (IMHO), and some nice personalities that chickens don't have the brains for.

When I was a child, I spent many days at my grandparent's farm where I'd go to the chicken house for my breakfast. Finding duck eggs was like hitting the lottery.

We had ducks when I was growing up, but we only ever used there eggs for baking. I don't know why -- some convention or tradition about duck eggs just not tasting that good. I wouldn't know because we never ate them! I think I'll have to look at trying some now, if I can get my hands on some fresh, happy ones. Yours look so tasty!
