Ten Cayuga ducks (4 hens, 2 keeper drakes, 4 soon to rehome to a bachelor pond) and 4 newly hatched ducklings, 40 eggs in the duck house waiting for a broody hen, two red merle Miniature Aussies, one black mutt cat, one insane(ly adorable) Devon Rex, and the most imperfectly perfect man I've ever met

I had one mallard lay white eggs, and another lay blue the same summer.  Could tell which one laid which.

Thank you for the responses. I know NOTHING about ducks. I'm a chicken girl myself which the owner of my local feed store knows. Knowing that I have chickens that lay green/blue eggs (which is still something of an oddity here in Canada apparently), he mentioned that he had a lady in looking for ducks that laid green eggs. His duck supplier said "no such thing". So I told him I'd check with the folks on here. I'll make sure to pass the information on to her and him. cool

I just made a page on Swedish ducks and from the information that I researched it said they lay mostly white but may also lay a blue or gray tinted egg.
