    Do they look the same? If you have the same breed duck do they all lay the same color egg? The reason I ask is because I have 3 female buff orp ducks and not sure about 4 of 5 geese. I have gotten 8 eggs and 3 of them look like Aracaunna's laid them (except for size cause if she laid that then [​IMG] )
    Sorry but I am confussed [​IMG]

    Ducks can lay different color eggs, like chickens do. You can tell a duck egg because it has a "waxy" feel. Goose eggs are just big and have the same feel as a chicken egg.
