    I got some mystery eggs from a lady and now I get to try and figure out what they are...lol. She has a bunch of different breeds all housed together so could be mixes...but of what?

    ETA: could be a Magpie.

    if she has breeds housed togather they are mutts.
    with no way to tell the parents until fully feathered

    sldo just because a duck has black and white spots doesnt mean its an ancona or magpie .
    they are most likely mixed.

    We've already established that they're most likely mutts. However, it's always nice for the new owner to have some kind of idea-whether it's absolute or not. This at least gives them something to work off of.
