    Eggs at 3 months!

    Is it OK to eat the first few eggs. I notice now on Day 3 the eggs are bigger. When I cracked open Day Two egg, it was thick, Yolk was nice and orange, the white was very clear and thick. it wanted to stick onto the inner shell. It could be that I am just no use to eggs this fresh.

    Eggs at 3 months!

    Should I be worried. I got two female pekin ducks on June 10th 2020. They are already laying eggs. I thought 6 months was the norm. I found something in the pen that looked like a deflated egg on day two. So far I have two perfectly formed eggs. They are the same size as chicken eggs. These...

    Hawk eats Cheese (the duck)

    I ordered a net to place on top of the whole pen. It is suspended from a tree limb like a big top tent. It works real well. We are able to stand up and do duck chores.

    Hawk eats Cheese (the duck)

    So how long does it take for a hawk to kill a duck, longer than 8 minutes. The hawk started eating him before he was dead. I took his lifeless body into the house to die warm, comfortable and loved. It took several days but after the swelling in his neck went down he made a full recovery. A...

    Pile of feathers but no body

The dog will go to the creek and bring back what is left days later. Usually the bones are picked perfectly clean and still intact. Like a skeleton in a...

    How to keep Owls Away

    My ducks are 4 months old. I placed 1" Mylar ribbons in the low branches of the trees. It worked! No hawks or owls but my ducks were also afraid of the shinny streamers. I wonder if they would have been exposed at an early age if this would not be an issue. I have a boarder collie that hangs...
