Hello guys, few months ago, I posted a thread asking questions about caring for muscovies and geese, and now that I have kept them for few months and enjoyed the experience, I have other questions. Yesterday, I harvested my very first muscovy, and yes, she was delicious, definitely gamier than ordinary pekin ducks, and far less fat content even though I had her eating only dried fruits for two weeks... More importantly, I have not had a single egg (I have hens that are old enough to lay, but I know it is not the season for them to lay), and given how much I like duck eggs, and given how badly I felt and how much work it was to dispatch these animals, I decided to go for primarily eggs, rather than meat (I am willing to harvest one or two for special occasions like Christmas or New Year's Eve). I came across the anconas, a wonderful dual-purpose breed, and here are my questions: 1) I heard that the anconas are outstandingly prolific layers, laying anywhere from 200~340 (!) eggs per year. But is seasonal like muscovies or do they pretty much lay eggs year-round like chickens? 2) If they are seasonal, typically during what months do they lay? 3) It is typically true that those lay lots of eggs, like runners, tend to have smaller eggs. Compared to those of pekins, which are huge, how big are ancona eggs? Just in case, the reason I am trying to have anconas as opposed to super-prolific layers like runners is that, as I mentioned, I want to keep them more or less a dual-purosed breed. Thanks in advance, and have a wonderful day.
