The mystery of the giant first egg: solved

I went out this morning to let the ladies out and I saw an egg as soon as I stepped into the run, before I let the chickens out. It hit me: now I know why these first eggs have been huge!  They aren't chicken eggs. They are duck eggs.  That explains why they have been laid on the ground too.  Mystery solved!  

We thought the ducks were nesting under the pine tree by the pond but I guess they like the safety of the run or maybe it's just a matter of time of day and where they happen to be when the feeling hits and she need to lay.

So the wait is back on for the chickens to lay...
