    Well, I don't go by sight, but I did weigh the eggs when I first had them and they averaged 75-85g .

    Most of our duck eggs are much bigger than chicken eggs. And maybe slightly more round. You can really tell them apart by texture- they have more of a waxy coating on them. And then there are the colored ones- my cayugas lay grey eggs and the runners lay blue-green.
