    I have 2 Rouens and one is laying beautiful green eggs like an Easter Egger. I don't have any chickens so I know it's them. Is she species confused?

    Rouens and Mallards lay green eggs. Aren't they pretty?

    My rouens lay very large, pale green eggs. They are much larger than chicken eggs.

    Rouen eggs are supposed to be a blue/green color. Mine unfortunately, lays a white egg. Only way I can tell it from the pekins is that it is smaller.
