Three duck eggs today
It seems our ducks are getting into the swing of laying. When I opened the duck house this morning, there were three eggs in there, waiting to be collected. We have only once before collected three eggs in a single day, and I am convinced that, on that occasion, one of them had been laid the previous day. So, 3 of the five ducks are laying - and hopefully they will be doing so on a regular basis. Meanwhile, the 2 drakes are getting a bit randy, chasing the ducks about and doing their thing without a moment's modesty!
One of the eggs this morning had a crack in it so it will be used later today to make pancakes.
