and what a start!
A perfectly formed, hard shelled egg. No yolk, but it's a start.
We had one of those a while back. pretty cool and yep it's a start!
There'll be no stopping them now
That is teeny!!
Isn't it? What surprised me was the fact that it was hard shelled.
She'll build up to bigger ones. Having the hard shell shouldn't surprise you though, she is clearly getting all the nutrients she needs.
Thank you for the info. All of the rest started with soft/no shell.
Maybe this one was a little piggy and pinched all the best grub
Seriously, some do start off soft/no shell; sometimes, even when they are established layers, they may still produce the odd one that is soft/no shell. You could add some extra calcium to their feed if it becomes a problem though. I bake the empty shells, crumble them up and add that to their feed - same as with my chooks.
And today we got 10 eggs from 10 ducks, all perfectly formed and of a useable size.
Isn't it a nice feeling. Glad they got the hang of it and I hope you enjoy your eggs.
