Here in the philippines, we call it "balot" and it's one of the best delicacies in our country. it's one of our favorite food. it's actually a duck or chicken egg matured only from 17-21 days, which is enough time for the embryo to grow in the shell. once cooked, it contains a small amount of soup-like fluid inside together with the yolk and the chick embryo. it's a yummy treat! i just don't get it why many people feels creepy about it...

I have never tried that. I don't know if I could or not. I only like my eggs well done in general. I do like duck and chicken and quail eggs though.
