    The ducks are smarter than my geese apparently - my toulouse pair just started laying. I thought they were just claiming their nest site for when the weather got better, but they have 3 eggs hidden in the run in shed.....

    Do you collect their eggs since it's so cold? My geese haven't started yet but I expect it could be any day. I see them going in everyone stalls noddling around in the shaving try things on for size. So cute.

    These ones are a lost cause because I discovered them so late. I'm going to mark them and leave them and hopefully grab what gets laid next before they chill. It's hard in this temperature because they get cold so fast. I'll leave her enough to keep her interested in laying, but I doubt I'll be able to throw them in the incubator like I'd like to until the weather improves.

    Yep found some at yard sales they work perfect. She is my only duck that uses them at any given moment the others prefer the shaving on the floor.

    Do you let them raise some on their own?

    Now you just have to tell them that is where they are suppose to lay :lau

    We got another egg today as well! Apparently Rocky has decided when she is done laying she needs out of her box. Yesterday and today she managed to knock off the top of her tub in the garage and jumped out. She left Rubble in the tub my himself and they were talking back and forth when I went to put them out. She is so friendly though and let's me pick her right up so it isn't a big deal.
