    After a looming hiatus, I am finally getting eggs again as of this morning. (yay!) Being that this is either the first egg or the first egg in 5 months + for the lady who laid it, I’m not surprised that it would be a little wonky, but I don’t quite know how to ID this? Is this Cuticle?

    I'm going into my third year with ducks but I haven't seen the green stuff before. What is it?
