Duck egg colours
« on: March 28, 2019, 10:49:45 pm »
We have four female ducks, plus Bill, who is definitely male.


Yesterday I collected three blue eggs plus one white one.


This morning, I collected three white eggs plus one blue one.


Can anybody explain what the hell is going on!?  ???

Well if Bill is  :innocent: , it's pretty difficult to explain last year's ducklings!


So, cuckoo eggs for breakfast again then?  Yum!  :yum:

 :excited:  love things like this ….. great mystery ….. nature is such fun :)

… Oh and don't forget Bill may have been a male last year …………. but ducks cam change sex (and no I didn't know that until a couple of weeks ago when my friends duck went from female to male!!)

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

I was just going to say that. I've had both a duck and a chicken that have changed sex
