    About 2 weeks ago I blowed and glued some eggs to make fake eggs and put in my pen for the chickens and ducks. Well one of the fake eggs dissapeared and I search and searched for it. No egg. Yesterday I saw a white dirty egg sitting at the spot where the ducks like to lay around, [​IMG] YAY A EGG! No lieing right when I picked it up all the ducks started quacking as loud as they could as if laughing [​IMG] fake egg, I was so close to throwing the egg at the nearest duck LOL

    WELL! TODAY I GOT MY FIRST EGG FINALLY!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Guess I dont gotta squeeze any duck butts after all.

    BUT

    Who laid it??? its green! and the only ones I got in the pen that I know lay green eggs are my cayugas and their only about 2 1/2 3 months old

    Heres a list of everything I have in the pen.
    Cayuga (3 months)
    Pekins
    Magpies
    Swedish
    Chocolate runners (3 months)
    Mallards/Rouen


    Brahmas
    Rosecombs
    Cornish

    Gotta love that duck humor!

    We got our first chicken egg yesterday, and I'd love to know who laid it. Just before it happened, they were all up in the coop making a lot of noise. They don't normally hang out there - they stay in their pen below. We didn't think to look who was in the nest box. We just figured they were having a party or something!

    Now we're wondering if the others weren't cheering the egg-layer on!

    I'm thinking we could probably figure out who it was by checking their vents, but I'd rather let the girls keep their mystery. [​IMG]

    I've read on here before----put lipstick on their butts and as the egg comes out there will be lipstick on it. Just don't use it on yourself if you use it on the ducks. [​IMG]

    Have you seen any mating going on?? My little cayuga went broody but none of the eggs were fertile.[​IMG] I have a drake but I only see him mate with one duck only. I would go ahead and bator it because you can candle it later.
    Good luck
