    Hello,

    One of my new ducks started laying sometimes last week end, but these eggs have been tiny.

    You can see one in the picture, next to one of my KC egg.

    The culprit is one of the following:
    - a blue Swedish
    - a Pekin
    - one of 2 gold star hybrid
    - one of 2 Rouen

    I'm leaning towards the blue Swedish but I'm not really sure.

    Any idea?


    Thanks :)

    No idea on which one but they will get larger as she continues to lay.

    No they're white, the light was just weird.

    Actually the tiny ones were slightly grey at first, but now they are white.

    My Swedish sometimes lays gray tinted eggs.

    Thant's probably it then :)

    It seems two of the new girls started to lay now. Both smaller eggs. One was kind of greenish.

    I will have to pay attention to make sure they do not start laying everywhere in the pen :)
