Someone brought me these duck eggs that were in a neighborhood by a pond at the base of a tree and the tree needed to be removed and they didn’t want the eggs broken, so I am hatching them. The eggs are very large and greenish blue color. Louisiana

Those are probably Mallards. But um, its kinda illegal to remove wild duck eggs. Not your fault, just something to be aware of. Can you get them to a rescue?
Thank you. I was not aware of that. I just want those babies to live, that is why I agreed to hatching them. Otherwise the eggs would have been destroyed. I will search into a rescue.

Looks very similar to my Rouen muscovy cross eggs/babies and my mallard Rouen babies so I'd guess it's a mallard cross with the single eyestripe. Those eggs don't look like mallard eggs though so could be a different wild duck or the drake was a mallard with a different female.
