A female Cayuga duck that I got from a breeder last summer just started laying eggs about a week ago , the first one was jet black, the others have been a dark greyish color. She has been laying everyday for the past week. My hens stopped laying for the winter and havn't started up again but this little duck just keeps on laying them . Havn't eatin' one yet, has anyone tried duck eggs? But if they're fertile, the bator is getting set up again for another season ! Here's the one she layed today. The proud "mama"
