What breed of wild duck lays small green eggs. About the size of a chicken egg. Its in Ohio.
Hmm, a lot of species do. Mallards for one and wood ducks. I found a chart online with all the different types and sizes of duck eggs, but I just tried to look for it in order to answer your question, but I couldn't find it. I will look some more.
ETA: I found this one on a site for British birds, but it has examples of gadwalls, shovelers, and mallard on it.
My Mallards lay pale green eggs, just about the size of a Large chicken egg. They are domestics though, wilds may be different. Not sure if other breeds lay green or not.
Its VERY small for a duck egg. Its like the size of a OGE Game chickens egg. I wish I had the camera with me right now! I don't think its a mallard egg either.
where at in Ohio? I doubt it is a wood duck as they nest in hollow trees and wood duck boxes off of the ground and out of sight.
In central ohio. It was laying on a boat, and its about to hatch!
You sure that its a duck and not a gull or some other shore bird? How do you know it is about to hatch? Take a picture of it if it does!
Because its rare to find shore birds around ponds in ohio. I candled it. And I will.
We want pics! We want pics!
I will add some. The little booger needs to hurry up and get here.
