So, this morning we found a nest under a tree, and it had 8 white eggs under it, but they were kinda small, and we only have 2 things on our farm that lay white eggs, we have 1 white Leghorn pullet, and a pekin hen, I don't have pics, im gonna be gone just about all day today, and i dont know if they are fertile, but we got all of the eggs but 2, and we are going to try to hatch them in our next hatch which is coming up!

OH, I kept thinking about how the egg looks on the outside, but you can also consider what it looks like when you crack it open. So when you go to crack it, if it's a duck egg, you may find the shell to be extremely thick and strong. Then you will find the yolk seems huge, and there is less white by comparison.
