    This is my first egg of the year and I am wondering if this a Muscovy egg or a chicken egg?

    The white egg is a store bought grade AA large chicken egg.

    I am thinking Muscovy because my two older chickens were laying an egg every other day between the two of them in the fall and now I have 4 eggs in four days. And one of the chickens lays a greenish egg.

    the shells are usually thicker on duck eggs, well, mine are anyway. the first lot of eggs laid by a new duck can be small like a chook egg.

    Well I am sure they are the muscovy eggs now. The egg was much harder to crack open.

    Well I think the duck inspired my chicken.

    Plus the white can be like a gel compared to a chicken egg.
