This morning's duck eggs

duck eggs Apr 13

These were the three eggs from the ducks this morning. As you can see, one of them is exceptionally small and has a very fragile shell. We have experienced this once before, though it was with the hens. It can be caused by a calcium shortage. I put grit which includes calcium into their food. Perhaps I am not including enough. I'll keep an eye on things and if the problem repeats itself, I'll increase the grit, poultry spice and egg shell I add to the feed.
