[help] Duck eggs vs chicken eggs

O mighty blogospheric brain, Dad and I are bedeviling ourselves with a question not easily disgorged from teh Google.

Why, in the United States (and possibly Western culture in general) does agriculture very strongly favor chicken eggs over duck eggs? Are ducks less productive or less hardy? Historical accident? Other factors?
