Duck lays black eggs in Mongla

02 October 2022

Bagerhat Correspondent :
Believe it or not a Khaki Cambel duck belonging to one Najma Begum (35), a poor housewife (of one day labourer named Zulfikar Gazi) of the Ward No.08 within Mithakhali Union Parishad under Mongla Upazila in Bagerhat district has been lying black eggs almost every morning for the last few days, according to a report received here.
It is learnt from the locals that 3 months ago she was given some 35 baby ducks by a local NGO named Nabolok to help her. Then the housewife purchased some other baby ducks for rearing up from them in order to get financial support. In Sunday morning when she opened the cage of the duck she got five eggs in the cage. But at one stage she was taken aback when she saw one of the eggs is black in colour. Then she thought there is something wrong. So, she did not sell or break it for cooking purpose. On Thursday out of curiosity the house wife broke one of the black eggs. But she found there is no difference between the black egg and the normal eggs. Then she fried it and eat the same. Later, she cocked some other black eggs. When it was leaked out a large number of villagers assembl there to see the black eggs.
