My ducks have me a bit annoyed. One day I found 2 eggs instead of the regular one. So I figured the 9 hens were starting to think eggs. . . so I ordered a 48 egg hovabactor forced air incubator with autoturner. Now I'm back to one egg a day and the shells seem thini- most likely due to the spinach leaves I gave them. I will be buying some oyster shells although I didn't think I needed to since I use Purina Layena diet. Ducks are getting spoiled with salads etc. Today they'll be getting snap peas. . . but they are still just laying 1 egg/day. I'm guessing just one duck is laying as occasionally a day will be egg-less. Although the eggs keep appearing in different nests.
I need duck eggs in the incubator now so they will be old enough for a herding trial in May but the ducks are not cooperating. Grr. .
In funny news the ducks are spending their days lying under the suet feeder hoping wild birds will drop some seeds. They've also made a club house under the deck so I have to find a way to prevent them from going under there. I don't see any eggs under there however I can't crawl under to double check.
