Chickens or Ducks what is the difference in the eggs. The duck egg is much larger and richer in taste while coming in at around 130 calories. The classic chicken egg is about 70 calories so much smaller in comparison to the duck egg.

We love to use our duck eggs for baking, but both chicken and duck eggs are great and one of the best sources of protein for individuals looking to source their own protein on their urban homestead. The duck egg brings in a whopping 9 grams of protein per egg and the chick egg is still around 5 grams of protein per egg making them excellent sources of this essential part of everybody’s diet. Both chicken eggs and duck eggs are nutritious and a healthy source of protein especially when they have the opportunity to free range and forage on your urban homestead.

If you have both chickens or ducks what eggs do you prefer and why?
