    can you post pics? i found a greenish colored egg in the duck pen. and the oldest hens are 2 mallards at around 7 months and 6 muscovy around 5 months. i'm guessing its a mallard egg.

    My Mallard's nest. They lay greenish eggs, but I don't know about Muscovies.

    I'm glad someone else had a picture of Mallard eggs! (Edited to add: And how pretty they are!!)

    Here's a few of Muscovy eggs:
