Yesterday and today I've found a "new egg" that I cannot identify and it seems "different". It's being laid behind a gate in the barn which is a favorite spot for the chickens to lay their eggs and just recently I've noticed that the ducks too want to spend more time in the barn. The egg is about the size of a medium chicken egg...and is an off white. I have hens that lay off white eggs and this is about the size for those chickens...but... The egg "feels" smoother than the rest of my chicken eggs and the shape is slightly different than what I'm used to seeing from the girls that normally lay that color and size. Now, here's why I'm confused...I have 2 hens that should start laying soon - this could be from one of them...but then again the ducks should start laying soon - this is the first time I've had ducks so no experience with their eggs previously....I keep reading online that duck eggs are larger than chicken eggs...so, do ducks lay "pullet" eggs when they start out? What do you think? Are the mystery eggs from the ducks or the young hens?
