Adriana:

Since we do not boil them, we don't view them as processed - just stored in
salt for a while.  At this point, we only sell to acquaintances, and haven't
been selling to stores or advertising publicly, so the issue hasn't come up.

What thinkest thou?

Dave

I understand that Vietnamese restaturants are also good prospective
customers for duck eggs and they are supposed to be superior to hen's
eggs for baking.

If you sell them brined are these considered "processed" and are
subject to health department and FDA regulations?
