    Hi i got an egg query. 1 of my ducks started laying an odd coloured yolk egg. It is a deep orange colour. Definitely different to other years. I have 2 other ducks but both lay yellow/ orange yolks. All of them eat much the same food. So is it something i should worry about? I have eaten one and didnt really taste any different but 1 did have one that smelt as if it was going bad?? Pictures attached. It does look thicker yolk than other eggs.
    Is it anythi g to do with the drake?[​IMG]
