Duck, Pheasant and Quail Eggs

Ninagio Jun 28, 2011 11:57 AM

Can someone PLEASE help me?!!! I live in Washington DC and I have been trying for the past two weeks or more to find out where I can buy these eggs! Does anyone know?

PLEASE HELP!! My birthday is in July and I am planning on having a few family friends over for a dinner party.

    KCC Natural Farms I know carries quail eggs and can probably do pheasant, since they sell the birds. They're a ways away from you but they do show up at a few farmer's market, although I'd call to place an order to make sure they have what you're looking for.

    I think I've seen duck eggs at H Mart, but I won't swear to it.

        You should definitely be able to get quail eggs at any big Asian market. Lotte in Germantown always has them, and H-Mart is usually a safe bet also.

          I saw quail eggs at Whole Foods in Old Town this weekend.

            Actually, they may have had duck as well. Not sure I would recognize pheasant, though.

            Quail eggs at the mushroom stand at the Dupont Farmers Mkt. Also could try WF

              Most large Asian markets have both Duck and Quail eggs. A typical price for Quail eggs is $4 for 18. I've never priced duck eggs.
