Another of the ducks we hatched last year has started laying. So on Wednesday we had 4 duck eggs laid. And on the same day, I found one of the barnvelder hens we hatched in the summer laying a brown egg in one of the goat houses. Egg production is therefore well up on where we were last year. Now we need to start planning to bring the incubators back into use so that we can continue to replenish the flock. It is likely we will start with quail eggs. These however we will need to buy.
