Duck eggs are larger than chicken eggs and have thicker shells and membranes, giving them a longer shelf life and making them harder to crack. They are richer and smoother than chicken eggs because they have a larger ratio of yolk to albumen and a higher fat content.  Baking? Your treats will be fluffy and lighter and have more lift.  Duck eggs cook faster than chicken eggs because there is less water in the egg.
