I have 4 female chickens and 2 female and 1 male ducks in one coop. My chickens lay brown eggs. Last few days I have found eggs in the middle of coop and in corner. How can I tell if they are chicken or duck? Will the be the same color? We have Rouen ducks if that helps.

Hi David, my rouen ducks lay a 3-3.5 oz. egg and very nice med. blue color,where as my chickens lay 2.2-2.5 oz. eggs.The duck eggs won't fix into a large size egg carton, there are much larger than a chicken egg and very tasty. Hope this helps you, Purplebean

My Rouen hen lays a white egg. The shell is almost see through and the yolk is much larger than in the chicken eggs.
