Duck eggs are said to be "the pinnacle of the egg experience." They just give a little bit more of everything - moister, richer, foamier, from cakes to omelets. Duck eggs are larger than chicken eggs, which means that “per egg” you’re looking at more calories and other nutrients (roughly 9g of protein in a duck egg, 6g in a chicken egg for example). Duck eggs contain proportionally more yolk than chicken eggs, making them proportionally fattier and more calorie dense, with higher amounts of the nutrients found in the yolk (such as iron and potassium) than chicken eggs, versus the white.
