    I have Pekin Ducks hatching out of relatively small eggs, but 2 of the eggs are gigantic and white. Any thoughts on possible breeds or will the Pekin eggs vary in size?

    Duck eggs vary in size pretty much no matter what the breed. Mine seem to lay the smaller eggs when they start laying, then now and again, I get huge one from an older duck, I guess. I have 5 females, Muscovy only, and this is the difference in egg sizes.

    Could be double yokers too.
    One of my pekin girls will occassionally lay a double yoker.

    Thanks for the picture showing the different egg sizes! It will be really helpful to lots of lurkers and newbies like myself.
