    Is that from a young hen that just started laying? New layers need time to work out the kinks in their system. You may want to post that photo on the "Duck thread," and see what they say.

    [​IMG] glad you have joined us.

    Do post that under ducks forum. All I can think of is a misfire on the Chalaza - but the appearance and texture is odd.

    If you have access to an Agriculture County agent, you could call them to see if you can email the pic and ask they get the experts for opinions.

    Would really like to know what you discover.
