    Duck egg yolks are much richer and thicker when compared to chicken. That's just about the only difference that I can think of, and it's definitely not a bad one. Here's a picture of one of my Khaki Campbell eggs, which are large and delicious!

    I agree. It's awesome. At first, being so dumb, I thought you had somehow gotten the insides out and perfectly in tact lol i don't know. It's awesome though

    Thank you! They're my first flock and they're only 3 months old but I'm 100% in love with all of them ^_^

    Thank you both so much! Kira's the only one who lays those unusual candy-striped eggs.

    I don't know what sideways head-bobbing actually means, but it looked like Gwaine (my chocolatiest hen) was ready to start something with my 60lb cattle dog this morning! He likes to run up to the fence of their pen and peep at them, and every time he did it today, Gwaine would rush to the front of the flock and start side-bobbing at him. I was worried she did something to her neck at first, but she only does it when he's at their fence peeping.
