Duck Eggs

Does any body know where I can find some quality duck eggs.
In or around San Francisco preferrably.

      Haney Egg Ranch has fresh duck eggs for $7 for a 15-count flat

    2. New May Wah Market on Clement Street has fresh duck eggs for $.39 each, less for a flat. They also have balut, which is a little less "egg" and a little more "duck". So to speak.

          Not even Chris Cosentino of Incanto could bring himself to eat balut, and he can eat almost anything. He has a recent blog entry about it (the photos are a little hard to take for some people, so don't click if you think you might be grossed out):

            I guess Chris wouldn't be a good candidate for a Balut Eggspress franchise...

              My theory on how balut got its name.
              The first person who tried one on a bet, bit in, tasted it and turned and said as he ejected it "balut".
