    Sorry guys, just so excited!!!

    Finally! Brittany popped one out!!! It's about time you slacking duckie!

    I went out to check this morning and in the lower box, BAM! Big white duck egg.

    The only thing is it was very dirty and looked like it was pecked at. It might be cuz it's been awful rainy out and their pen is very muddy.. [​IMG] Do y'all think it's ok to eat? Or should I try and remove the yolk and paint it instead?

    Eat it [​IMG]

    It amazes me how nasty those ducks can make their eggs-sometimes mine are *really* filthy and it takes some scrubbing to get them clean!

    Quote:Awesome! Are you going to hatch them? I guess ducks just pop out messy eggs.
