It should accept oeuf, I'm pretty sure you don't have to use the œ ligature. In your question you've spelt it wrong though, and written ouef.

et "oeuf" ça ne marche pas ? avec le "o" séparé du "e".....

Si, duolingo accepte les deux écritures.

" oeuf" works just fine for me . I never use the "oe" character. "oUef " does not work.

It doesn't accept it as it is spelt incorrectly. It does accept oeuf without the ligature.

œ is a special character.

In Duolingo's web version, you can click on the special characters under the input field: œuf
