How Long to Boil Duck Eggs
It takes 20 minutes to hard-boil duck eggs and a bit less than that if you like your eggs less done. Duck eggs are usually larger than chicken eggs, which means they'll need a little longer to cook. But the best method is a gentle one, not a full-on boil. Just put your eggs in a pot of cold water, then bring the water to a boil. Let it boil for 1 minute, then turn off the burner and cover the pot for the remaining cooking time. If you like your duck eggs soft-boiled, stop at the 5-to-7-minute mark; you'll get medium-cooked eggs in 10 minutes. Regardless of how long you choose to cook your duck eggs, remember to plunge them into cold water when they're done to avoid overcooking them.
