Heavy metals in backyard duck eggs?

Asked September 21, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

Is there any way I can test my eggs directly for heavy metals? I'm not interested in deducing the presence of heavy metals through soil testing, but would actually like an accurate, direct reading.

You might try the University of Missouri's lab at http://www.aescl.missouri.edu/mineral.html. We often use them for a variety of analyses.
