Partly due to the larger yolk, duck eggs are significantly higher in both fat and cholesterol than chicken eggs. But they’re also higher in protein and have a higher concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, making them a favorite of paleo dieters, who seek high-fat foods. Besides that, duck eggs have a nutritional profile similar to chicken eggs.They are as safe as chicken eggs.So you don’t have to worry about some kind of weird unhealthy loophole.

Hi welcome - Good to see your question. I must say poultry always better. Duck has more fat, cholesterol. Eventually you can but not regular.
