I know that it is unlikely but if I do at some point live in the country and have ducks, turkeys, and geese producing eggs as well as chickens and my chickens for some reason aren't laying eggs can I use duck eggs, turkey eggs, or goose eggs in a recipe that calls for eggs but doesn't specify the kind of egg(which usually means large chicken eggs are used)? If so are there any major adjustments I would have to make besides the number of eggs used?
Duck, turkey and goose eggs are larger in size. One duck egg could be the equivalent of 2 chicken eggs. I would think you would need to determine the difference by weight, once out of the shell. The taste would not be discernable, except in an omelet or alone cooked for breakfast. The flavor would then be stronger. Hope that helps.
I used 2 duck eggs in a recipe that called for 3 large (chicken) eggs and the cake came out fine. I don't mind using "other" eggs for baking, but not a fan of duck egg omelets. The taste is very different.
