High demand for unusual eggs

When you think of eggs, chickens probably come to mind, but one North Dakota farmer can't keep up with the demand for duck eggs.

When you think of eggs, chickens probably come to mind, but one North Dakota farmer can't keep up with the demand for duck eggs.

Steph LeDoux with Steph's Pastured Eggs stays busy delivering eggs. LeDoux collects nearly 50 dozen chicken eggs a week at her farm near Driscoll. But she says these larger duck eggs are getting eaten up just as fast.

LeDoux: "I have a demand from a lot of people who bake. the duck egg is richer, and they are moist. When you bake a cake, it's really fluffy. At home when the kids bake they prefer to go for a duck egg too, just because there is a huge difference in baking."

LeDoux says a duck egg is equivalent to two chicken eggs. She says most duck eggs have two yolks. Right now, there are 102 people on her waiting list for farm fresh chicken and duck eggs.
