    Can the first duck eggs look just like guinea eggs ?
    My Runners will be 6 months old next week.
    I have found two eggs in a dust bath spot over the last week.
    They look just like guinea eggs- same size, pointed end, same color,
    but my only guinea hen has been on her nest and the nest is undisturbed.

    What type of ducks do you have? What color is the egg? Can you post a pic?

    These are the two eggs I found.
    I know they look like guinea eggs but
    my only guinea hen is on her nest.
    My ducks are 6 mo old Runners.

    They look more like guinea eggs to me, too. Are they really thick shelled like a guinea's eggs are? Could any eggs have rolled out of your guinea hen's nest? My runners eggs are all green; even when they first started they were green, just a little darker than they are now.

    Ok- I agree. They have to be guinea eggs.
    My poor hen must be as confused as I am.
    She's brooding a small clutch and still laying an occasional egg, I guess.
    I've checked her clutch and none are missing.
    Thanks group.
