Well no offense to your friend at all, but she just doesn't know what she's talking about. ;)

LOL! She knows a heck of a lot more than I do, though! :D

I know this is an old thread, but do anybody else's Cayugas lay pale green eggs consistently? My ducks just started laying-- the runners are laying white eggs like normal, but now I'm getting pale green, too! Presumably from my Cayuga girl, since my blue Swedish girl isn't old enough. I also got one or two dishwater colored eggs.

I am a bit disappointed. I was hoping for black! Or even grey.

My chocolate runner lays green eggs, similar to the ones in your picture. This whole time I thought it was my silver runner, because they are more likely to lay green than a chocolate is. Today when I was outside I saw my chocolate making a nest under my brusslesprout plant and sure enough- she laid a green egg in it! @Amiga once suggested putting a dab of food coloring on the vent of your duck at bedtime, so when she lays an egg, it would have some color on it, and you can identify which duck lays which colored egg.

My eggs are invisible because they haven't started laying yet :(. Am starting to think they may not lay this year but start in the spring.

I check their bedding daily and drain their pond once a week to see if anyone decided to lay in the water.

My girls lays blue green eggs when she lays. They are almost the color of Easter egger chicken eggs.

My phone thinks that it is smarter than I, please excuse the typos and nonsense jabber.
