    I had one mallard lay white eggs, and another lay blue the same summer. Could tell which one laid which.

    My Mallards lay a definite green egg, almost bluey green. My Rouen also lays a green egg, but it is more grey/green.

    Thank you for the responses. I know NOTHING about ducks. I'm a chicken girl myself which the owner of my local feed store knows. Knowing that I have chickens that lay green/blue eggs (which is still something of an oddity here in Canada apparently), he mentioned that he had a lady in looking for ducks that laid green eggs. His duck supplier said "no such thing". So I told him I'd check with the folks on here. I'll make sure to pass the information on to her and him. [​IMG]

    I just made a page on Swedish ducks and from the information that I researched it said they lay mostly white but may also lay a blue or gray tinted egg.
