    I have no idea! I never would have thought a tall Runner duck could get in and out of there but she does it! I accidentally kicked it doing head count yesterday and she came flying out from under mad as a "wet hen!"

    From the colors of the eggs, the green ones are hers but the white ones came from the Mallard/Pekin cross.
