Hooray for Ducks!

Food allergies require creative thinking. This is why I raise ducks.

There are chemically-formulated egg substitutes on the market, but who wants to needlessly ingest chemicals? When I read that people who can’t eat chicken eggs are sometimes able to tolerate duck eggs, I was excited to try.

Four years ago I purchased a mixed flock and discovered that my daughters and I all do well with duck eggs. Unfortunately two of my sons don’t do as well — read that to mean that they don’t eat fried or scrambled eggs, but they can at least have the minute quantities of egg that appear in homemade hotcakes and mayonaise.
