    my cayugas will lay dark almost black eggs at the beginning of breeding season then they get lighter colored as the season goes on.

    I have Cays. And yes they are laying. This group hatched in may.
    I dont have Rouens anymore ( I used to have 4 rouens ).
    My Cays eggs very in color. Sometimes being white, grey, blue-ish, black-ish, cream-ish, etc.. But for the past couple weeks we have been mostly getting grey eggs.

    I have a rouen pair and a cayuga pair, and I still haven't found any eggs!! [​IMG]
    I have read that the cayugas eggs will be almost black when they first start laying. How much do you want for your eggs? Are they pure rouen and pure cayuga, or are they mixed together?

    Edit to add that I haven't found any eggs yet, not even from my 2 pekin ducks either. I have 10 ducks total, 6 drakes and 4 ducks, so I guess they are just waiting [​IMG]
