    Today I did not let my group out to free range ( to cold) I have mallards (4) and 6 guianes (can't spell) in the same coop. When I went out to give fresh water. I have 2 very light greenish grey egg's. Could they be the ducks or guianes?

    Never had this color before. Any thought's would help. Looked for pics and did not find any.

    Duck eggs. They should have a waxy feel to them also.
    Guinea eggs tend to be off white to brown, alot of variation. Guinea eggs alos are usually shaped different also. They tend to be fatter around at the top and pointy bottom not your oblong egg shape.
    Hope that helps.

    Ok!!!
    Must be duck egg's. Felt very smooth. My chicken egg's feel alittle rougher.
    Shape is like a regular chicken. One is larger than the other.

    Yeah, definitely the ducks. My guineas eggs also have spots on them, either brown with white spots, or brown with darker brown spots.
