I did buy a 25 gal, stock tub to let them play in, and I am working on shading that half of the run where they will be housed. The Cayuga eggs do look amazing and will be a nice touch to my flock of Easter Eggers. 🙂
I can hear the ducks quack from across the acre and they can be as loud as the rooster just outside my window, lol. Of couse without a full choir of them, it's going to be a bit quieter for you. Ironically, the ducks quack for conversation kinda whenever and don't announce the coming of eggs. They will tattle on another bird laying an egg. And yes, the eggs make a beautiful contrast. Oh, and ducks don't train to a nesting area well. Most people, including myself, I've read, find the eggs wherever sometimes even in their pond.
Here's a cayuga egg we got a couple days ago.
OBTW: Khakis will lay any number of colored eggs, white, brown, tan, blue, etc. depending on how much of which breed presents itself in the individual.
