I think my Rouen duck popped out her first egg today it is about twice the size of a large chicken egg. Any descriptions or pics of ROUEN duck eggs would be helpful....

If they are waxy feeling and translucent seeming, it is a duck egg! Congrats! Go make a fried egg sandwich! Yum yum!

Hey, there you are!

Found this picture..



From left to right: chicken egg, muscovie egg, and the last 2 are rouen eggs.

And yes if they have a waxier feeling, most likely a duck egg.

Ok thanks!
The only thing that throws me off is that it is the same color as my Red Sex-Link eggs.
Should I look for a different yolk color or something?

If you crack it ipen you can usually just tell by how the egg brakes . Well at least i can the shell sticks together more instead of falling apart like a chicken egg does
