What is my duck cross bred?

  1. My cayuga (if she's that anymore) laid her first egg which kind-of matched what their first egg should look like.
    This last week she has laid 5 more eggs which were almost white, like ivory. What is my duck?[​IMG]

    Here's what she looks like.

    I am NOT a duck expert, but shes kinda tall in those images, is there any chance she might have some runner in her? :)

    Looks like a black runner.

    That is what I thought because my other cayugas (which came from metzer so they should be pure) have more coloring than her and weigh much more.

    She laid 3 eggs last week and my Cayuga laid 18 :ya
    As you can see hers are almost white compared to the other ones.

    Do runners lay this color of eggs??
