If you are going to eat them fairly quickly, they can be left unwashed on the counter. But they will last longer in the fridge. If you wash them, do refrigerate them. But we keep ours on the counter most of the time but we eat a lot of eggs too! :)

In my area, we can sell them for $3 or 3.50 but other areas may be able to get more. It really depends on what people are willing to pay and that sometimes is just setting a price and seeing if people will buy. That's not very specific but it is so different from area to area. So many people own chickens and ducks in our area that the price doesn't go very high because of the glut of eggs.

How do you handle the duck eggs to make sure they are good to sell? I've bought duck eggs from 2 different people & 1 store (summer only) & the one person I bought from on a couple of occasions the eggs were horrible!!! This was after boiling the duck eggs & it smelling rotten & it occurred 2 times & I stopped buying. Yuk!! The others I've never been disappointed. Husband & I are hoping to buy some land & we plan on raising & selling duck eggs, so I'm trying to learn how to make duck eggs sell & not be rotten. Thanks!

Hello Judith! :) How exciting for you! Ducks are so much fun! (And so messy--haha!) This is merely speculation but ducks do tend to hide their eggs and even bury them. Maybe a nest of eggs was found and they were older than the person thought? They do need to be cleaned carefully (as written in the article) and if washed, put in the fridge. It could be a couple things: they were handled improperly, not refrigerated, or older than they should have been. I don't think you'll have any problems with your eggs if you collect often, clean properly, and keep them cold. :)
