OK! I am sitting here with a dozen boiled duck eggs in front of me wondering whether to open the window before I throw them through it or not!

I have tried poking holes in the eggs. I have tried putting vinegar in the water. I have tried holes and vinegar. Fast boil...low and slow simmer...bring to a boil then cover and let them cool down. I have tried peeling them hot and almost frozen...

How do you get the da...stupid things to peel so they don't look like Jason or Freddie peeled them???

Help me Obiwan...help me!!!

Try adding 1tsp of soda to the water.. I tried it with fresh  hen eggs and it worked great...

They may be too fresh. Much like chicken eggs, they're harder to peel when they're super fresh.

I find that steaming fresh eggs instead of boiling works much better.  My parents got me a small egg steamer that works wonders, but I think you could use your regular cookware and not have one more gadget to store!

I know some one else said both, but gain make sure they are not TOO fresh, or they dont peel so well, and I would say try eggies. they are great! no peeling at all involved yet you still get boiled eggs!

Add salt and baking soda to the water.
Or...let them sit for a few days if that doesn't work.
