    Do all of muscovies color phases have the same color of egg? I am getting several of what I call the off-white eggs. I am also getting some eggs that are closer to a chicken egg in size and green. I am trying to decide if I have a chicken laying in the duck nest, or if one of ducks lays green eggs.
    I have three black/white muscovies, one white muscovy, and one white pekin. All should be old enough to lay right now. They are freeranging with a lot of different chickens.

    I picked up so MuscovyX duck eggs and they are green. Do you know how long till the Muscovy mixes hatch?

    Interesting. I had not thought about the possibility a different drake got to my 'scovies. That big Muscovy drake of mine is so big and dominant I figured he had them, but he is slow also.
    Anyone else have a thought?

    Hello, i kn we have some Muscovy breeders out there. Are all eggs the same color, regardless of color of the bird? What about pekin eggs, all white also?
