    Hello, I know a lot of things about ducks . The other day I realized I know nothing about eggs and ducks. So here are my questions:

    Do ducks lay every day?
    Do they benefit from egg shell hardening supplements?

    *I don't even care if they don't lay,they are my pets*
    does one duck egg equal one chicken egg?
    Can i take the eggs away right after they leave their area?
    *sorry for all the q's*
    is it good for them if i cook their eggs and feeds them back to the ducks?
    *i know they don't lay all year. don't know NOTHING about eggs?lol*
    I have a khaki campbell, welsh harlequin, cayuga, black swedish.
    What color eggs will all my babies lay?
    Thank you for your help :)

    I had 2 mallard runners and they laid everyday by 8 am - sometimes in the pool - the eggs were green and are aprox. 1/3 bigger than a large chicken egg. do not know about other breeds.
