More duck eggs
We have only 4 ducks and 3 drakes. One of the ducks was hatched in November but I was pleased to find that, yesterday, she laid her first egg. It is still quite small, about the size of a hen egg. Today, for the first time ever in keeping ducks, we got an egg from each of them. That deserves a minor celebration tonight. We'll crack open a bottle of homemade elderflower champagne to toast another self-sufficiency milestone, even though it's just a small one!
