My ducks just laid their first egg yesterday. Froze solid. Of course, laying in the pen instead of their duck house so I put out some nest boxes in the outdoor pen. Today I got the egg before it froze. I leave for work at 5:30 am and let ducks out of their pen at that time. I wonder how many frozen eggs I will find when I get home today? And will they lay them all over the yard too?
I haven't seen any duck eggs yet, fortunately. I have enough broody hens that keep the eggs from freezing in the coop. That's the bright side of that problem I guess.
