They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well in this case it sure is.  People ask us all the time about the difference between chicken and duck eggs, well you can see it below in color and richness alone.

Recently we did a class for about 50 students and staff members who were at our farm for four days.  We served them a full breakfast two mornings.  As out demand is so high for our eggs we could not feed 50 people eggs from our ducks two days in a row.  So for the first time in a very long time I had to buy eggs.  The eggs on the right are top quality organic chicken eggs.  See the beautiful deep yellow orange in the bowl on the left, those are our pastured duck eggs.

This is why I often say while duck eggs beat chicken eggs no matter how you cook them try them sunny side up, poached, basted or say over medium with soft yolks.  They will simply blow you away.  When cooked over medium the yolks are almost like yolk butter, they are that rich and wonderful.
