Because of their size and yolk to white ratio, goose eggs are the most nutrient dense and nutritious eggs you can buy! They have an incredibly short season, so they are difficult to come find, but the great thing is that they have an incredibly long shelf life - so you can buy them now and enjoy them for many weeks/months to come!

Duck vs Chicken vs Goose Egg Nutrients: Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet especially when from wild or pastured birds. Eating them frequently adds variety to the diet, and boosts nutrition considerably. As noted earlier, the large yolk and small white in goose eggs are the reason why. Even when adjusting for the obvious visual size difference, the total amount of fat in a goose egg is much higher than in a duck or chicken egg.
