Duck egg color chart?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if anyone knows of any websites out there that are similar to this one here

But for ducks instead of chickens. I'm interested in seeing the comparison of different breeds all on one page.

Hummm... I stumbled on an "eggs laid per year" chart once but I don't think it showed colors. I bet we could make one. Between all of us water fowl people, I think we have all the breeds covered big_smile

We should it would be a really useful guide. We could even include the noise level, productivity, and other good details.

Let me see if I can get a google spreadsheet started.

yea that's perfect! Can you include pictures in that?

Now you just need more people to leave info on the other breeds.

I am not that experienced with spreadsheets so I haven't figured out the "insert picture" thing yet

Tell you what. I am going to start a new thread titled "help create a duck breed chart". I will see if some spreadsheet gurus will stop by.

Here are some campbel eggs. I stopped taking them off because the female was sitting on them (sometimes).

Love the spreadsheet. How about adding a spot for pics of babies and a pic of the actual eggs they produce. That would be wonderful. Maybe even a spot so you could have male pics and female pics for the breeds that look different.

Thanks for the hard work. clap
