Just curious. I'm constantly reading the "help, I have an egg eating chicken" threads on the Eggs forum board. It just occurred to me, I've never known any ducks to exhibit this behavior. Never ever. I've had chickens over the years that have been egg eaters, though. I think it may be related to the size, shape, and purpose of the bill. The duck's bill was designed more as a filter to strain small food particles out of mud and water than as a pecking bill to break apart larger objects and find food hidden within. So, do ducks ever have egg eating issues? If not, or if it's really rare, I wonder why more people don't raise ducks for egg production. I just ordered my Golden 300 hybrids, and am so looking forward to more duck eggs. Maybe we need to enlighten the chicken people? Or, have I just been lucky?
