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

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.
