    Phillipino people eat duck eggs that are half developed. I can't eat those. Half developed chicken eggs yes. But no duck for me.
    Am I the only one who searched for The Edge from U2 and ended up here?

    I once bought some of these eggs with baby birds inside from the asian market not knowing what was inside. I had my daughters crack them open the next morning as we were going to make an omelet--out tumbled this half-ducklings. All of us were shocked and a little grossed out.

    I admit its partly traumatic for me too even though I eat that stuff. I eat the yolk and the white but the chick tastes just like you would imagine. Bones and feathers. But it's worth trying out just to tast that natural broth from the egg. Nature sure knows how to season.

    We Filipinos call it "balut". Best eaten in the dark after a few beers. My kids love it (sans beer). We were laughing at home when it was one of the challenges on "Fear Factor".

    I remembered hearing that not all bird eggs are as nutritious as chicken eggs, but duck eggs seem to compare pretty well:
