Well I just went out to check on my chicken eggs and the one muscovy that is around 5 months old was up in one of the nest boxes pulling shavings from the other boxes next to it. I don't have a male so I know that if it is laying eggs it won't be fertile. I am in cold IA. I thought that muscovies only layed eggs a few times of the year. I wouldn't think this would be the time of the year is it? Does anyone have a picture of a muscovy egg? I sell my chicken eggs and I need to be able to tell the difference between them. This is all new to me with this duck.
