Pronunciation of eggs

Pronunciation of eggs

I always thought the "f" was pronounced in "oeufs", but in the video she does not pronounce the ending. Are both forms possible?

Hi Ana,

Un œuf, singular and the -f is pronounced, euf

Des œufs , plural sounds like dézeux ( no -f)

You might hear young children say dézeufs but incorrect really...
