Duck Eggs - contain more protein, calories, Omega 3, vitamins & minerals than chicken eggs. They are prized for making homemade pasta. they are also larger & richer with more albumen making cakes & pastries fluffier,
moister & richer.
A tip - when baking gluten free use duck eggs. The added protein in the whites will help bind the gluten free ingredients better & cause the texture to be lighter & more like wheat based cakes & other baked goods.
They are also an alkaline producing food,
one of the few foods that leave your body more alkaline which is a great benefit to
cancer patients as cancer cells do not thrive
in an alkaline environment.
Another health benefit is that most people
who are allergic to chicken eggs are able to eat duck eggs without allergic reactions, though please discuss this with your doctor first.

CHANDER HILL FARM
We raise 3 breeds of duck for both meat & eggs. They
are the Pekin, Muscovy & Silver Appleyard.
Our ducks are raised on pasture which results in a
much less fatty meat than those raised commercially.
They are also fed small amounts of non medicated,
non GMO feed.
Since they are raised on pasture it does take longer for them to reach table weight, but the difference in taste
is worth it.
Pekin - a common breed of duck with great tasting meat, they are a creamy white color, very chatty & are hilarious to watch. We can guarantee that spending 10 minutes with them will make you smile, they are just goof balls.
Silver Appleyard - is a rare breed listed as 'critically endangered' at the Livestock Conservancy. Developed
in the U.K. by Reginald Appleyard in the 30s. He said
his goal was to raise a duck 'with a combination of
beauty, size, lots of big white eggs & a deep, long
wide breast'. These ducks are very pretty, predominantly being silver, but occasionally pure white, they are active foragers & great mothers. Their meat is lean with excellent flavor & they are among the best layers averaging 240 eggs a year. Our breeding stock is from the highly regarded Holderread Water Fowl Farm & Preservation Center on theWest Coast.
Muscovy - prized for their amazing meat which
has been compared to many expensive cuts of beef,
it is also one of the healthiest meats on the market
today, being at least 98% fat free. Muscovy eggs are delicious, their taste is rich & they are considered a delicacy. They are very broad breasted, active foragers,
dedicated mothers, good fliers & are the quietest breed
of duck. They come in many colors including black,
blue & chocolate & we have examples of each!
