I have a Rounen duck that i got at the beginning of the year. This is my first time having a duck of any kind. Anyways, she started laying eggs yesterday and then another today but they look odd. They seem small for a duck egg, and they are noticeably different sizes and color. Is this normal and is it because she just started laying for the first time? Or is this something to be concerned about? Also, how do i tell if these eggs are any good or if I should throw them out? I have attached a picture of her 2 eggs.

She will get "it" "right" in a few days and be more the same size. Break the egg into a bowl---if its fresh and looks good----eat it.

Either the little one has no yolk or the big one has two. It takes time for new layers to work out the kinks so you don't need to worry. They should be fine to eat as long as they weren't exposed to high heat for a long time. Like PD said, crack it open in a separate bowl and check it before adding in your recipe or eating it. (I actually always do this as it's a good food safety habit.)
