How normal is it for a duck to lay a tiny egg?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

First time we've had female ducks, and our blue sweidsh, Moneypenney, has been laying for about two months now.  In that time, she's laid a consistently sized egg (about 75 grams).  Today for the first time, she laid an egg that was about half the size of all her previous ones.

 

Is this normal?

Yes it's normal she is laid out she should start back laying normal sized eggs in about a few weeks but can be as long as a month laid out means that she has basically laid a full nest of eggs and she should start laying her next set of eggs in a couple of weeks but can be as long as a month

These are sometimes referred to as fart eggs or fairy eggs. Totally normal. They usually don't have a yoke.

Well, I'm glad we made our duck egg quiches yesterday, then!

 

Thanks for the info.
