    Quote:I have the same mix, my Khaki eggs are white, an odd white...not like a chicken egg white....LOL..lol.And the shell texture is a little different. Gee I was a big help!!! They are also slightly larger then the chix eggs.

    Hello..your duck eggs will have a sort of light greyish color to it and if you crack a duck egg, the shell is MUCH harder to break and the egg whites are REALLY thick! Duck eggs are great for baking! They make everything SO moist!!! My ducks just lay eggs right on the ground too. [​IMG] And for some reason, they're usually dirtier than my chicken eggs. [​IMG]
