A Mother Duck with Her 8 Eggs – Nature 56

- The Rainbow Before Evening : A Duck Lays Eggs in the Pot – Nature 54

One of our neighbors guessed wrongly, based on “an egg” color, the duck should be Mallard duck, he said.

Unfortunately, a duck is the Muscovy duck. She lays more and more eggs, from 3 eggs several days ago to 8 eggs as of today.

By searching through Google, the Muscovy ducks have several times to lay eggs in a year.

One clutch usually has 8 eggs to 13 eggs. The duck’s eggs usually take about 28 days to hatch.

The Muscovy duck may produce up to 120 eggs per year. The number is much less compared to Campbell or Khaki Campbell ducks which produce 340 eggs per year.

  5. Wow! That is a lot of eggs. We have those ducks here and saw eggs near a small pond a few years ago and then went back to see the ducklings. They sure are cute!

  7. Vaya si hay variedades de patos que no sólo ofrecen sus huevos, sino su carne. Claro que hay que saberla preparar, y ello depende de que se sacrifique el pato, para que no sepa como dicen por aquí, "a tierra". Un abrazo, y cuán instructivo es tu blog. Un abrazo. carlos

  10. Hello :=)
    The duck does lay a lot of eggs, We have had the Muscovy Duck on the farm, and the chicks are so cute, and so are the ducklings.
    All the best.
