Several people on here have mentioned that their ducks lay eggs in their ponds. Somebody mentioned fishing them out, but I don't remember if they ate them. I never had this problem before, but one of my ducks has started laying either on the shore right next to the water, or in shallow water. I don't know if the eggs can absorb bacteria while submersed. Anyone know? I won't have this problem any more until spring, because the pond froze over the weekend, but I have a half-dozen water-laid eggs sitting in the refrigerator, and besides, I'm curious. Thanks!
