    It looks white in the picture but it is actually a pale green!! So pretty! We had an egg celebration with extra peas and lettuce!

    Now what to do with it! I heard that you shouldn't eat the first couple eggs, so I will probably blow it out and save the shell!

    Any thoughts?

    Those ducks have really grown. I have really enjoyed all the pictures as they grew. I would love to have some runners myself. Congrats on your first egg. I hope you get lots of real nice ones.

    Lol its ok, people tend not to eat the first ones because they aren't as nice as and they're heaps smaller... its a ducks first egg, it wont be perfect [​IMG] dont worry, you'll live. Not much difference. But its the same as taking a first duck's eggs ever out of the nest - they probably wont hatch or be weak.
