Today is the ninth day in a row that we’ve been getting three eggs from the ducks! So very exciting! Marcus is the one to collect them since usually he’s the one who gets them up each morning and I always require a report of where he found the eggs and I’m proud to say that they are usually laid in their nesting boxes! I had heard so many conflicting stories about whether or not ducks would use nesting boxes so I am extremely pleased that the ducks are laying in the same places.
The eggs are coming from the Welsh Harlequin (the patterned one) and the Buffs (the blonde ones. The Cayugas are supposed to lay black eggs at first and all the eggs so far have been white – lazy Cayugas!
Another thing I wanted to mention is that except for one day, all three eggs have been laid by the time Marcus lets the ducks out of their house at 8:15-ish each morning. That’s important (to me) because having them still closed up in their house until after they’ve finished laying means no daily Egg hunt!
I don’t have any new duck photos, but here is a video I took last month of the ducks having a grand time playing in a puddle in our backyard:
