    I have a mixed flock of about 15 or so chickens and 5 ducks, 2 days ago I started getting one Ginormous white egg along with the regular haul every morning. They have more of a noticeable "film" on them than the others do, I have never seen the ducks go in the coop. Do you think this is a Duck egg?

    Crack one open and cook it. Duck eggs have thicker shells and taste stronger.

    I'm excited to see if they end up with an alligator or something. [​IMG]

    Duck eggs are much smoother than chicken eggs, almost a wax like feeling to them.
