    What breed is the egg from? I've got almost a full bator of Muscovy eggs right now, some should be hatching within a week or so!

    They are Golden 300 hybrid layer duck eggs. Boyfriend got them for my daughter and I. He thought this would help the time pass by since he is in the military and wont be around for the holidays. The drakes will have the same coloring as Black Swedish drakes and the ducks will have similiar color to a khaki campbell duck. Cant wait!

    Quote:Well.....sorta....but in most cases....not really....once they hatch you will see that they all look nothing alike....some are almost entirely black while others have eyestripes and are a light buff color...they can be basically any pattern or color but the females will be sorta brown and the males will be sorta black. We have a female (laying like mad [​IMG]) Golden 300 and have raised many other Golden 300's for other people to buy. Ours' (her name is Kip [​IMG]) is light brown with eyestripes like a Rouen, a lacing pattern like a GLW and some teal blue wing feathers. She and our Black Swedish "Ady" are in my Avatar. Golden 300's are truly awesome ducks. Have fun w/ hatching!

    I couldn't help myself.. I cracked open the little "pullet" egg and was so sure it would just be white. Well to my suprise it was all Yolk.. i'm not even sure how that thing fit in there! I shoulda got a picture but it broke pretty quick on the side of the shell because it was spilling over, lol.

    Hopefully I can post some pics in a day or two - when I have a collection of eggs to photograph. I have borrowed two Runner ducks from a friend for about 2 months and one of them is laying green eggs. I only just brought her home today- so fingers crossed they will still lay in the morning so I can collect my first coloured egg.
