And then there were 8
Two days ago, I found 7 duck eggs waiting for me when I let the ducks out in the morning. I have 8 ducks (and 7 drakes though some of them will be slaughtered soon) so I wondered how long I would have to wait until the final bird started laying. I didn't have to wait long.
Yesterday morning, 8 eggs were waiting for collection. I now have a rather large haul of eggs that need to be used up. Baking sessions may be on the horizon.
