    I think my girls have retired for the year. :/ I got my last eggs about 2 weeks ago. No more eggs for the year. :( They did pretty good this year. It looks like they layed a total of 10 1/2 months beginning the end of the year in 2011 until now.

    Are your girls still laying eggs?

    No, Miss Lilly stopped about a week maybe two week ago... for a bit ago i had everyone laying, sorry but i don't need that many eggs lol We sent up two 18pkg's of eggs up to MIL, should be interesting to see what happens this winter, i have had some 'scovies lay periodically in the past.

    You have a nice number of ducks over there. I'm sure your family will love the duck eggs.

    Funny enough they are rather hard to convince people of around here, i can't sell them at all... should be fun come next spring as i added 3 more ducks this summer....

    I actually started making the dogs scrambled eggs [​IMG]

    If you have any bakeries or local chefs that bake, they may enjoy baking with them. I have a lot of people who bake that buy ALL of the duck eggs.

    And you added 3 more???!!!!!!!!!! :th That should be fun.

    I bet the dogs like the scrambled eggs. Those jokers are hard to scramble for some reason. :/

    Good job at selling out. :thumbsup

    Are people for goose eggs for eating or hatching?

    So your scovies are still laying huh? That's great! When did they start and when do you expect them to stop?
