I was recently given some Indian Runners which even I can tell are not the best quality.
As they are coloured I can be fairly certain they were crossed to something else in the not so distant past (I'm guessing more than one generation ago though).
What has really got me baffled though is that one of them is laying blue/green eggs. :?
Which duck breeds lay coloured eggs?
Maybe if I know what breed she was crossed with I can figure out which one it is....

I have bitsas. Looks like some indian runner, khaki campbell, silver appleyard...
The one closest to a KC lays large pink eggs while the other two ducks who are more like the appleyards lay bluey-green eggs.
