    I thought I saw online once that there was a duck breed that layed blue eggs. I have not been able to find it online again. Am I remembering what I read wrong or is there a duck that lays blue eggs?
    Do any other ducks lay colored eggs?

    Some of my runners lay a beautiful tinted egg. They are a kind of green/ blue colour. Mallards will also lay light blue/ green coloured eggs as well as cayugas- but they are much darker in colour.

    Cayugas lay black eggs! I wish I had a picture [​IMG]
    Mine laid black eggs for the first month. They slowly lightened, and now they are white like everyone else's. Every once in a while I'll get a slightly black/ gray egg from them. I've read that once they molt, the eggs will be black again.
