    I just had a duck egg that was really thick and like jelly, it was a fresh egg from yesterday and it smelt fine.

    What's wrong with it or is this normal? My duck is a muscovy

    Also if it helps any it's been really hot here lately like in the 90s

    Sometimes you just get an odd egg. I'd not worry about it unless she keeps laying eggs with yolks like that

    Looks like it was frozen. Being that I have no idea where you live that theory could be out the window :)

    Wish I could move there right now. But am not ready to give up that America will do the right thing.
