    For about a week now I have been getting this huge green duck egg. It's almost as big as my pekins egg. Can a runner lay this big of an egg. My runner eggs are around the size of a medium chicken egg. Also do runners lay white eggs too.

    I get a mixture of white and green eggs from my Runners. The size does vary a bit between them too. The older girls lay consistantly larger eggs- while the younger girks still throw a small one into the mix at times. Most of the eggs from my older girls are about the same size that I get from my utility pekin.

    Sieben, one of my black runners, lays very large (Jumbo chicken size plus), almost spherical, green eggs.
