Strange duck egg? - Page 2

post #11 of 12

I'm not sure.  The green shade deposited in/on the shell looks an awful lot like spirulina.    I'm feeding spirulina to my new batch of ducklings  and that''s the exact color of spirulina when  it is wet/ pooped out.

 

Maybe she's eating or tried some algae from the pond? 

 

I didn't take a picture of my hens  weird egg. But he splotches were definitely overly deposited bloom and they felt sticky to the touch in the blacker polka dots..like  price  tag glue.

it could be spirulina but wild ducks eat algae and they don't have those splotches so it could be spirulina.
