    Honestly, I am not sure....I know my mallards are laying...but I also found a new nest, with one egg...that is lighter in color than my mallard ducks...so I have no idea what it is...lol

    I have mallards and wood ducks...LOL...I have nest boxes out..and whoever laid this egg, laid it in the chicken coop...LOL This mystery egg is really light color...very pale...smaller than a mallard...I've been trying to search the web for a pic...but can't find a good pic.

    They are usually a creamy or ivory white, a little more rounded as compared to a Call duck egg. Here is a photo from one of the nest boxes I had in 2008.
