My duckes were hatched about May 1st and i do beleice I have started to get some eggs. Iam i right that the shells of a duck egg is thicker than a chicken egg? I also thought a duck is was a little larger than a chicken egg. I was advised that my chicken eggs might be a little small in the beginning when they start laying for the 1st time. Is this tjis same with ducks? Will their eggs be a little smaller at first? Like my name I am a 1st timer raising them but some 20 years ago my mother in law raised them but she has passed.
