    Since that grasshopper incident all ducks are laying one at least large egg per day, i get 14 eggs daily, which confirms that Katharina indeed is broody and has stopped laying. Plus i get four Jumbo eggs per day, i assume from Blanca and her White Panzer division, so feeding much protein is good for egg-production! - No i won't do it again!
    Here is my duck-egg classification:
    less than 50 grams (1.8oz): Peewee
    50 - 60 grams (1.8-2.1oz): Small
    60-70 grams (2.1-2.5oz): Medium
    70-80 grams (2.5-2.8oz): Large
    80-90 grams (2.8-3.2oz): eXtra Large
    more than 90 grams (3.2oz): Jumbo
    Compare that with the Chicken Egg Classes from the DoA, would i use those, i only had large and heavier eggs. Somebody laid a 130 gram (4.6oz) egg yesterday, i assume a triple yolker.
    I don't think $4 per dozen is asking too much for such large eggs, and there are only few eggs with less than 60 grams.

    I am not a "certified organic" producer, but i bet my ducks and their eggs would exceed all requirements. No pesticides at all, feed from a local feed-mill without GMO and my ducks do know for sure what "free-range" means. They demand to be put to bed in the evenings because they are tired.

    GOOD GRIEF! If google maps located your location correctly you indeed live in a very rural area! You guys have running water and electricity? - Just kidding! I thought Wilkes-Barre was rural…

    The local Kroger is selling "organic extra large chicken eggs from free ranging chickens" for $6 a dozen. I wonder if those chickens ever see the sun or blue skye…

    Balut! - I could sell Balut here to the Asian grocery store, but i won't! I read the story of the »Baluties« from @Texas Kiki … No money in the world will make me do this!
