      Spousal Unit won't touch 'em, and he's got those ducks so spoiled you can't believe it. Always been finicky. So far, only #1 grandson's girlfriend is bad allergic, but bad enough that I know to warn people.

      I've found that if I whip the eggs with my immersion blender before cooking scrambled, omelet, etc. or baking, the albumin tends to break down more. Add a little milk when blending, it helps. There's no cure for protein, and duck eggs are packed! Thicker, harder shells than chicken eggs, they're good for 6 weeks once refrigerated. And are actually better digestible when they're older.

      Got those yellow peeps for our youngest grandkids last Easter, figured I might be lucky and have one live long enough to be a good watch-critter for chickens. Now I don't need chickens (more duck eggs than anybody needs), and the ducks think they're dogs. Because they have dog guardians, I guess. They're really great fun, we're installing a pond now (it never ends...).
