Title basically sums it up. I do not tolerate chicken eggs very well. I have tried eating just the yolk but they still seem to sit in my stomach/cause other gastrointestinal issues. Do you think there's a chance I might tolerate duck eggs or goose eggs? I want to eat eggs sooooooooooo baddddddddddddddddddddddddd but wanted to see if anyone else had any luck with this before going on a huge egg hunt extravaganza.

Apple cider vinegar is alkaline, not acidic in the body. Therefore, I'd imagine it would hinder your digestion of meats and eggs- especially if you're low on stomach acid. I could be wrong.

For me personally, fresh backyard eggs don't help. I think it may be some specific antinutrients or irritants in the whites of chicken eggs. Either the same ones don't occur in duck eggs, or they're in smaller quantities. The duck eggs I get are about the size of chicken eggs with HUGE yolks and much less white, so that may be part of it. For Lutfisk though, this could be a factor, since he has different symptoms than I.

I was also going to suggest "secondary infection" might be an issue. Those of us who feed our dogs Raw (BARF or Prey Model) have noticed that some dogs do not do well on corn fed chicken products but pasture fed chickens and ducks are not a problem. Sometimes you have to look at the diet of the meat source. Sigh...our food sources are soooo messed up!!!

Will look into betaine though.

YES! I don't handle chicken eggs well. It's gut problems for me, rather than stomach problems if you catch my drift. I can eat 1/2 a chicken egg mixed into something, but more than that is problematic. Duck eggs are fine for me though, at least up to 1 whole egg a day, I haven't tried more than that.

However, a friend who has similar problems with grocery store chicken eggs says she does OK with farm fresh or backyard chicken eggs. She attributes the problem to eggs that have sat around too long.

Sounds like you just don't have enough stomach acid to handle eggs. Try 3x a day 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar in 8 oz of water. And you can also take 3-4 betaine HCL tablets to assist with digestion of eggs.

I have trouble with conventional chicken eggs when cooked, but I never have any trouble with any raw eggs, and no trouble with cooked free range eggs. One of my favorite (non paleo) dishes growing up was a raw egg mixed with rice and soy sauce. Scrambled eggs, though? Bring on the nausea.

If you live near an asian market, you should try salted duck eggs. They're delicious :)

Yes! Duck eggs are amazing. I was so sad to have to cut out chicken eggs after realizing that I get almost every symptom of a chicken egg allergy shortly after eating.

Had duck eggs for the first time yesterday and not only do they taste delicious and have more fat/less protein than chicken eggs, but I feel incredibly energized after eating them and have no side effects whatsoever (and this is coming from someone who currently has many allergies to different foods).

I'd certainly recommend giving duck eggs a try, you might fall in love like I did! :)

I am also trying to find an egg I can eat. I developed some intolerance of chicken eggs in the last couple of years, and now cannot eat them without a nasty stomach reaction, followed by possible passing out altogether. I have tried backyard eggs, no good. But I have recently tried free range duck eggs - beautiful, and hey! no side effects. Long may it last. I would like to know what is in chicken eggs that isnt present in duck eggs

I've personally found quail eggs easier to locate than duck or goose eggs... but I can't really speak to the main question. You might try pastured chicken eggs if you have not, there's a chance you could be sensitive to something in the feed that's passed along in the eggs.
