Duck Eggs vs Chicken Eggs Question (food allergy issue)

My son was recently diagnosed with egg allergy.

I read that duck eggs could be substituted for chicken eggs and were usually fine.

Then I read that wasn't the case.

His allergy is mild so if I do give him duck eggs, it will be hard to tell whether or not they bugged him.  He will possibly get diarrhea.

So my question is, do any of you have a child with chicken egg allergy?  Have you tried duck or quail eggs?  If so did your child still have a reaction?

Thanks.

Egg allergy is and egg allergy meaning ALL eggs. It is like having a nut allergy. You are allergic to ALL nuts. If you eat them then you can go into anaphylactic shock. You can't substitute anything unless you want to kill the poor kid.

Thank you.

We only found out because we ran blood test not because he goes into anaphylactic shock.  In fact fried eggs were his favorit breakfast.

I won't kill him, honest.  :-)
