Mini duck egg
These were the eggs laid by our ducks yesterday. Note the small one. This was laid by our aylesbury. She is the only one laying green eggs. She is also the oldest of our ducks. We got her as a duckling in September 2012. Despite being nearly 2 years old, she continues to be a good layer, producing an egg nearly every day since mid March. We have to expect however, as she gets older, the occasional mishap such as an unusually small egg.
