Hmm, a lot of species do. Mallards for one and wood ducks. I found a chart online with all the different types and sizes of duck eggs, but I just tried to look for it in order to answer your question, but I couldn't find it. I will look some more.
ETA: I found this one on a site for British birds, but it has examples of gadwalls, shovelers, and mallard on it.

My Mallards lay pale green eggs, just about the size of a Large chicken egg. They are domestics though, wilds may be different. Not sure if other breeds lay green or not.
Don't get all your exercise leaping to conclusions!
Poultry- they may be your pets, they may be your hobby, they may be your livestock. But remember, if you fall down in the pen, unconscious? They WILL eat you.

Its VERY small for a duck egg. Its like the size of a OGE Game chickens egg. I wish I had the camera with me right now! I don't think its a mallard egg either.
In central ohio. It was laying on a boat, and its about to hatch!
Because its rare to find shore birds around ponds in ohio. I candled it. And I will.
