    either all my ducks are laying or 2 of them are laying 2 a day. I thought the Peking and mallard eggs would look different but the egg math is a little off

    My Mallards lay beautiful green eggs with a touch of blue. They are the same size and shape as the brown chicken eggs from my Rhode Island Reds.

    Our eggs are green for the most part, but I have had and still do have a Mallard hen or two that lay creamy-white eggs. Most of our nice show Mallards lay beautiful blue-green eggs, but some of the so-so mallards and a few of the snowys lay other colors.

    mine are white i think.....
    One of the pekings has been laying 1 white egg a day and all the sudden i have double what i should be getting ( I left eggs in the nest for 3 days due to her only laying one)
    Last night i collected all the eggs and today i needed to do some coop cleaning and i went to the nest and i have 4 white eggs instead of the 2 i was expecting.
