    Current flock = 12 Red Sex-Links and 1 Khaki Campbell duck that isn't laying yet we don't think.Where did we get a white egg? All we've gotten up to now is brown. [​IMG]

    Well I would assume your duck if you think she isn't laying yet. From what I've heard, can't Khaki Cambells lay white eggs?

    I think your khaki campbell laid that egg. A red-sex link will not lay a white egg.

    If it is a duck egg, the shell will be different to hen eggs; more "delicate" looking/feeling.

    Now that you mention it the shell does feel different. Kind of like sandpaper. It looks as if we have our first duck egg. [​IMG]
